Transportation via Canals: Past, present and future

By C. Sidaway, T. J. Price and S. D. Probert


The rise and fall in the popularity of Britain's inland-waterway system is described, along with the factors which influenced the use of British canals. Present trends in the development and use of large-scale US and European commercial waterway networks are analysed. Recommendations for the increased commercial use of Britain's current (and prospective future) inland-waterway network are presented; the aim being to make a contribution to an integrated, environmentally sustainable, nationwide British transport policy.
