The Line graph illustrates how much goods were transported in the UK from 1974 to 2002 by various methods of transportation namely road,water,rail,and pipeline. The Quantities are measured in Million Tonnes.
Overall,Road was the most frequently used mode of transport for goods during the specified period, while pipeline was the least frequently used.There were fluctuations but Road,water,pipeline showed an upward trend while rail showed a downward trend initially but regained its position.
During 1974, Road initially carried almost 70 million tonnes of goods and it climbed to 90 tonnes by 2002, while Rail carried initially about 40 million tonnes but it dipped to about 30 million tonnes and continued to fluctuate before settling at 40 million by 2022.
