The graph shows the quantities of goods transported in the UK between 1974 and 2002 by four different modes of transport, namely road,water,rail and pipeline.The quantity is indicated in million tonnes
As we can see the Road and Water modes have been able to transport goods not less than 40 million tonnes from 1974 onwards which has only been ever on a gradual rise.By 1990 the Road mode has touched the 80 million tonnes mark which it crossed during the period of 1998.However in the water mode we see a downtrend during the 94-98 period where the goods transported changed from 60 million tonnes to 50 million tonnes.
Coming to the rail and pipeline modes which has ever barely crossed the 40 million tonnes mark during the whole period till now. As the rail mode shows us a almost straight line graph without much fluctuations and moving always close the 40 million tonnes mark
Now in the pipeline mode we see a gradual increase from 0 to 30 million tonnes in the 1974 to 1984 period which now comes to almost a straight line moving always close the 20 million tonnes mark for the remaining period.
