THE TRANSPORT FIELD: REPORT OF THE PRESENT SITUATION AND PROGNOSIS FOR THE PERIOD UP TO 1990

TRANSPORTSEKTORN: REDOVISNING AV AKTUELL SITUATION OCH PROGNOS FOER TIDEN FRAM TILL AAR 1990

This report gives a description of the Swedish development in the transport field in the seventies and also some estimates regarding the situation up to 1990. Passenger and freight transport, within the country and abroad, are dealt with. The total vehicle kilometers are calculated and divided into various means of transport. The vehicle kilometers for passenger transport increased sharply in the beginning of the seventies. In particular, the number of journeys to and from work increased as did public transport. The increases are expected to continue but at a somewhat slower rate. Even freight transport increased sharply in the beginning of the seventies. Then it decreased after 1974, before a new increase in 1979. The railroad and road transport handle about equal parts of the long-distance transport. The railbound transport, however, is expected to increase. The entire freight transport is expected to increase somewhat more than in the seventies. This is, however, dependent on the future industrial growth and supply of energy.
