INTERNATIONAL COMPARISONS OF TRANSPORT STATISTICS 1970-1992. PART 1: ROAD AND RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE AND FREIGHT AND PASSENGER BY MODE

This report revises and updates the 'intermodal' statistical bulletin, for 1970-88, published by the Department of Transport (DOT) in 1991. Part 1 covers: (1) road and rail infrastructure; (2) freight lifted and moved; and (3) passenger traffic by surface mode of transport. The data for 1982 and 1992 are given and compared for various European countries, the USA and Japan, and are taken from various international publications. The report first presents some general information, including population, area and population density. The next two tables give some tables about road and rail infrastructure, including network length of roads and length of operative rail network. Three tables give: (1) freight lifted by mode of transport in 1982 and 1992; (2) the percentage change over the period; and (3) the modal share of freight lifted in 1992. Similar tables are given for freight moved. The average haul length by mode is given for 1982 and 1992. Three more tables give: (1) passenger km travelled in 1982 and 1992 for each mode; (2) modal share of passenger travel in 1992; and (3) passenger traffic per head between 1982 and 1992. These summary tables are complemented by detailed historical time series for each category.
