The purpose of the article is to assess the degree to which the implemented road construction projects contributed to the strengthening of the polycentric pattern of the Polish region of Mazovia (Mazowieckie voivodeship). The investigations conducted may also enable a broader consideration of the effectiveness of transport policy in the context of the most important spatial policy and territorial cohesion objectives of the EU. The spatial scope of the research encompasses the region of Mazovia, but the analyses performed also referto the entire country. The analysis carried out had a dynamical character and concerns the period between 2007 and 2017.
