The above line graph depicts the graphical data of goods transported in the United Kingdom from the year 1972 to 2002 through the different modes of transport used in that period i.e,road,water,rail and pipeline.
The interpretation of the graphical data shows us that the road transported 70 million tonnes of goods in 1974, it took a slight decrease in 1982 and increased to transporting upto 95 million tonnes of goods between the period 1986-2002.
Around 40 million tonnes of goods were transported through water in 1974-78, it increased to 55 million tonnes in 1982 and was constant till 1994. it took a slight dip in 1998 and shot up to 65 million tonnes in 2002. The railways transported 40 million tonnes of goods in 1974-78 and fluctuated between 30-40 million tonnes in the period 1982-2002.
5 million tonnes of goods were transported through pipeline in the year 1974 and rose from 10 million tonnes to 25 million tonnes in the period 1978-82. It remained constant till the year 1990 and decreased to 20 million tonnes in 1994, thereafter remained constant again in the period 1994-2002.
