Infrastructural transformations are an indispensable element of developing cities. They condition the proper flow of goods, information and people. The communication infrastructure is of particular importance for cities, which determines their proper functioning. Difficulties in accessing space are often one of the main barriers blocking the intended development direction. On the other hand, in order to prevent the currently occurring phenomenon of city sprawl, it is necessary to focus new investments within already existing transport corridors located closer to the center. Such an approach has the chance of implementing an alternative to the progressing phenomenon of suburbanization in the form of promoting the concept of the so-called compact city. Thanks to such activities, the urban potential has a chance to be maximized. As part of this article, based on the example of Wroclaw, the transformation of road infrastructure has been tracked in relation to the ongoing spatial and landscape changes. An interpretation of the recurrently modified study of conditions and directions of spatial development of Wroclaw, showed the relationships that occur between road infrastructure and urban space and the surrounding landscape.
