COMPARISON OF ENERGY CONSUMPTION BETWEEN ROAD AND RAIL

This study is a report on the present situation concerning traffic in which road and rail means can be considered as competitive, that is a domain in which transfers from one type of traffic to the other could be envisaged. This study is based on a long distance traffic (310 miles) and excludes distribution traffic over short distances for which rail is badly placed compared to road facilities as well as bulk transportation in big amounts such as minerals which cannot be transported by road.
