Policy issue: Optimise the use of existing infrastructure capacity and revitalise rail and inland waterways
The length of conventional railway lines decreased by about 9 % (mainly due to the closing of unprofitable small lines). The high-speed rail infrastructure is gradually being extended in line with plans for the TEN: the length of high-speed track almost tripled between 1990 and 1999, to more than 2 700 km, and is expected to increase to 24 000 km (of new and upgraded existing lines) by 2010. The length of the navigable waterways decreased by 8%.
