Trains from Norwich to London: Sustainability travel

Indeed, taking the train is a sustainable way of travelling. Compared to other means of transport such as cars and aeroplanes, travelling by train is more environmentally friendly. According to a study in 2014, of all Europe’s carbon-dioxide emissions caused by transport that year, railways produced only 1.6%, whereas cars produced 73.4% and aviation produced 12.6%. So, what makes train travel sustainable? Trains are associated with less noise pollution as compared to cars on roads. Since trains pass by fewer times than a continuous fleet of vehicles, they are generally quieter. Rail lines occupy less space as compared to roads, and trains can occupy three times less space per unit as compared to vehicles. Nearly all trains in the UK today operate on electric power. The advantage of using electric trains is that they no longer produce the same air pollutants. Although electricity still must be created to keep the trains moving, minimal sulphur and carbon monoxide is formed as they travel around. Most trains today use regenerative braking. This helps them to recover energy when they are coming to a stop. This is very useful for trains, making regular stops at various stations.
