The modal split in freight transport changed considerably between 1996 and 1999. The share of road transport increased, whereas the share of rail decreased considerably from 47 % in 1996 to 36 % in 2000, thereby threatening the objective to maintain a 35 % share of rail transport in 2010 in the acceding countries. The share of oil pipelines and inland shipping accounts for only a small part of all tonne-kilometres and remained stable during the 1996-99 period.
