The graph below shows the quantities of goods transported in the UK between 1974 and 2002 by four different modes of transport.Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The line diagram which indicates the goods transported in UK between (1974) and (2002), according to different ways of transport and the tonnes they carried.
Among these lines, water and rail both start with the similar value 40 million tonnes at 1974. After 4 years, the amounts of goods that carried by ship had an increase. However, the amounts that transported by trains went down. Though water line had a decrease from 1982 to 1998, the overall value of it always above the rail line.
The most obvious line which can find on the top of chart is the quantity of goods that transported by road. It held the highest position during 28 years(start at 78 tonnes and finish at 98 tonnes). Turning to the bottom of the chart, the black straight line reveal the pipeline. It is clear that the black line had two climbing points, but it is still the minimum figure.
Overall, the chart demonstrates that the technology is developing. Because all the lines have a positive gradient or the final value is greater than start value.

The graph illustrates the quantitiesof goods transported in the United Kingdom by four different modes of transportbetween the time period of 1974 and 2002. Over this span of 28 years, thequantities of goods transported by road, water and pipeline have all increasedwhile the quantity transported by rail has remained almost constant at about 40million tonnes.
The largest quantity of goodstransported both in 1974 and 2002 was by road(70 million tonnes and 98 milliontonnes respectively) while the lowest both in 1974 and 2002 was bypipeline(about 5 million tonnes and 22 million tonnes respectively). The amountof goods transported by water was constant from 1974 to 1978, where it showedan exponential growth, rising to almost 60 million tonnes after which itplateaued for about 20 years before starting to rise gradually again.
The amount of goods transported byrail is almost constant at 40 million tonnes in 1974 and 2002, with decreasesin quantity in between the years. It is also interesting to note that almostall showed a decrease in 1994 in amount of goods transported except for thepipeline, which actually peaked in that year.
In conclusion, the road remains themost popular method of transporting goods in the UK while water and pipelinesare becoming increasingly used, have not become more popular as a method oftransport.
