Evaluation of Spatial Structure Deterioration of Land Plots Caused by a Nearby Motorway, Based on a Selected Example Using GIS Tools

Construction of motorways and ring roads is a serious planning challenge. By their expansive nature, such investments have a great impact on the environment, landscape as well as on the land use planning process. Their planning and construction frequently cause social and spatial conflicts in the areas through which they run. With modern GIS techniques it is possible to conduct analyses of the impact of such roads on the spatial structure of rural areas and to quickly review different variants of the course of a road. This article evaluates the change in the spatial structure of plots caused by motorway construction. At the first stage, information was gathered and analysed on the current state. Next, the surface and spatial impact of the new motorway was evaluated. Finally, the evaluation results were used to determine the extent of morphological structure changes to the plots. The results were presented on maps and graphs. Employing GIS tools allows to unify procedures, to reduce the time needed for the planning and design process and to analyse different locations of the road in order to minimise the negative spatial effects.
