Are EU Cohesion Policy funds well spent on roads
Special Report No 5, 2013
The Court audited a sample of EU co-financed road projects in Germany, Greece, Poland and Spain. The audit found that, although the projects increased security of travellers and reduced travelling time, some roads were built larger and over complex than were the actual traffic requirements. Significant cost differences exist between countries audited. The Court recommends analysing the causes of the cost differences and more realistic planning for future road projects.
