THE FUTURE OF RAILWAY TRAFFIC

DE TOEKOMST VAN HET RAILVERKEER

Compared with the car, the bicycle and the aircraft, railway transport is very old, exactly 150 years old. The question of the future of such an old system is discussed and answered by reference to history. Railway transport has marked advantages for long-distance traffic. Over short distances these advantages diminish and consideration has to be given to spatial division, the use of space and a more active public transport policy. /TRRL/
