key words: road of agricultural transport, rural areas, land consolidation

Summary:

Parameters of agricultural transport network are an important element that affects the operating costs of farms. The proper shape of the road network, suitable density and the quality (in particular the width of the roads and the type of their surface) should provide an opportune and efficient transport between home farm and some of the parcels. The article presents an evaluation of the agricultural road network in the village of Wola Idzikowska in the Fajsławice commune, which underwent land consolidation from 2004 to 2006. An inventory of the study area was conducted, and the following were determined: the distances between agricultural land and home farm, the road density index, the road extension index, and requiring different grades of the urgency of hardening roads' surface due to degradation of erosion were indicated. Eexisting agricultural transport network in quantitative terms has rated positively, whereas urgent and very urgent of hardening requires at least 4.45 km of ground roads.
