The question: “are we optimising the use of existing transport infrastructure capacity and moving towards a better-balanced intermodal transport system” has attempted to been answered by referring to data available on network lengths.
The indicator covers roads, motorway, railway (including high speed rail lines – HSR), navigable inland waterway lines and pipelines. Additionally it looks at transport infrastructure density in terms of land area (kilometres per km2) and transport infrastructure density in terms of population (km per 1000 inhabitants).
Infrastructure networks (capacity) are measured in kilometres (km).

Based on the current classification, Latvia and Malta have no motorways. Norway's pipeline data is excluded due to data revisions made for the major part of the current decade. However, data is included for this country for Motorways, rail and IWWs. European HSR data is for BE, FR, DE, IT, ES, CH and the UK.

Plug the electronics in your living-room
(TV, DVD player, stereo system) into a single multi-socket electrical bar. When not in use, simply switch off the bar and save on the electrical consumption by as much as 10 %. Appliances left on standby still use quite a lot of electricity.
