Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece was sec­ond to last in the 2016 edi­tion of the Euro­pean Union Trans­port score­board which com­pares the per­for­mance of 28 mem­ber-states in 30 trans­port-re­lated cat­e­gories.

Ac­cord­ing to the data, Greece was well above the EU av­er­age in the num­ber of road fa­tal­i­ties with a rate of 75 de­ceased peo­ple per mil­lion inhabitants. The EU av­er­age stood at 52. Malta had the low­est num­ber of fa­tal­i­ties, re­port­ing just 26 deaths per mil­lion inhabitants.

Mean­while, Greece ranked eighth in the num­ber of rail fa­tal­i­ties, with 1.2 deaths per mil­lion train kilo­me­ters. Den­mark, Ger­many, the UK, Ire­land, Lux­em­bourg and the Nether­lands scored the low­est rate at 0.1.

The score­board also in­cludes other rank­ings such as the num­ber of women em­ployed in the trans­port sec­tor and con­sumer sat­is­fac­tion with ur­ban, rail and air trans­port. It also mea­sures trans­port in­di­ca­tors re­gard­ing the in­ter­nal mar­ket, in­vest­ments, in­no­va­tion and in­fra­struc­ture.
