Planning for inland navigation in Western Europe


The possibilities for inland navigation are quite different in the various countries of Western Europe. Especially where originally natural waterways were found these were used from ancient times for transportation. On the western european continent notably Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and to a lesser degree France are the countries where inland navigation plays a large role. For that reason most of the figures mentioned in this paper will be confined to these four countries. Table 1 gives a rough impression of the part played by inland navigation.
