In the first decade of this century, Slovenia focused the majority of its investments in the road network, especially on the construction of the motorway. Investments in railways have been neglected and therefore, uncompetitive with the road transport. After 2011, this trend is changing, although the total volume of investments in transport infrastructure has decreased significantly since 2008. Since 2010, Slovenia has been allocating a larger share of funds to the modernization and upgrading of the railway network. The share of investment funds in transport infrastructure intended for railways in 2015 was as much as 58%, which is above the average of the EEA-33 countries. After this year, the share fell again at the expense of investments in road infrastructure, but due to the planned investments in the connection Koper - Divača, it will strengthen again in the coming years.


This indicator shows the volume of investments in infrastructure of road, rail, air and maritime transport in the Republic of Slovenia in the period 1992–2014; this includes all investments in infrastructure except regular maintenance costs. Infrastructure investments include expenses for new construction or the expansion of existing infrastructure, including restoration, modernisation and larger repair work. Infrastructure includes land, the construction of permanent transportation infrastructure, such as roads, railways, buildings, bridges and tunnels as well as fixed installations, equipment and installations in connection with them (signalisation, telecommunications, catenaries, power plants, etc.). Infrastructure maintenance costs are costs for the maintenance of infrastructure in such a condition that it may operate (SORS, 2004). Infrastructure of air and maritime transport also includes investments in equipment for traffic management and the provision of safety.

The development of infrastructure is important, as it strengthens the integration of markets, improves trade and fosters development and regional cohesion within Europe. Nevertheless, transport infrastructure negatively affects the environment in direct and indirect ways.

The indirect effects of transport infrastructure relate to their impact on biodiversity and fragmentation of ecosystems, as well as to the impact of nearby infrastructure on protected areas of nature. In Europe, the greatest threat is represented by the impact of new infrastructure on ecosystem fragmentation.

The direct effects of infrastructure relate to noise, energy consumption and emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants resulting from transport.
