Rail versus road. Decades of propaganda have established the myth that railways cost much less, are far safer, have much more capacity, use less fuel, less manpower and are far kinder to the environment than road transport ever can be.

Surprisingly the myth turns out to have no basis in fact. This paper critically re-examines the road versus rail debate in an attempt to determine if the planned capital expenditure on rail infrastructure will (1) yield satisfactory returns in investment and (2) to what extent an improved rail network could contribute to sustainable socio-economic growth in especially underdeveloped rural areas.

Less fuel means less greenhouse gas emissions. Intermodal solutions gather steam as shippers track the financial and efficiency benefits of combining truck and rail transport.
