Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to investigate the Polish part of the TEN-T 23 rail axis from a perspective of planning megaprojects. The study aimed at investigating a megaproject in a geographical context that has not been studied by Bent Flyvbjerg or Peter Hall. The theories used are megaprojects, accessibility and mobility. The main research method was interviewing professionals. The most significant problems were a lack of transparency, the communication between stakeholders and benefit shortfalls. Large infrastructure programs in the past contributed to the widening gap between central and peripheral regions, this might be the case also with this corridor. It is questionable if such large investments are beneficial for the society in countries where transport infrastructure was not getting enough attention for many years.
