Hierarchy Areas in the Communication Network in Poland

Communication networks are used to transport people and goods. This article attempts to identify the structure of the road network in Poland and valuable areas in this structure (their hierarchy). To accomplish these objectives it uses the results of general traffic measurements. The knowledge about the location of the most important nodes or areas in the communication network plays a vital role as far as safety improvements and limitation of transport negative influence on the environment and living conditions are concerned. The study carried out on the road network in Poland indicated that there are eight important node regions, the so-called “valuable areas”: three regions at the national level and five regions at the voivodeship level. The national regions include Górny Śląsk (Upper Silesia), the Warsaw Region and the Northern Region, while at the voivodeship level the group includes the sub-regions of Wrocław, Cracow, Bydgoszcz, Poznań and Lublin. According to the available knowledge, it is possible to preliminarily identify the space around the researched communication networks/regions where the environment ought to be analysed.
