The aim of the paper is to define the main effects, value and share of EU funding allocated in Poland under Operational Programmes 2007–2013(2015) in the transport infrastructure projects total, by different categories of projects as well as by individual operational programmes. Under all Operational Programmes 2007–2013 beneficiaries in Poland signed 2774 contracts for transportation infrastructure projects of a total value of 167.2 billion PLN, of which 98.5 billion PLN had come from EU structural funds, as of 31 December, 2014. Although 2774 transportation infrastructure projects made up only 2.7% of all contracts, they enabled the absorption of nearly 35% of total EU funding allocated to Poland in 2007–2013 and made up a significant share of 33% of the total value of all projects carried out in Poland under the 2007–2013 OPs.
