image of Inventory of Main Standards and Parameters of the E Waterway Network
This book presents a regularly updated inventory of existing and envisaged standards and parameters of E waterways (Pan-European network of inland waterways of international importance) and ports in Europe and shows, on an internationally comparable basis, the current inland navigation infrastructure parameters as compared to the minimum standards and parameters prescribed in the European Agreement on Mainland Inland Waterways of International Importance (AGN). It identifies bottlenecks and missing links in the existing E waterway network. This second revised edition has just been prepared in accordance with the instructions of member states, both Contracting Parties to the AGN and those not yet Contracting Parties.




The European Agreement on Main Inland Waterways of International Importance (AGN) in its annex I lays down the network of E waterways including a few portions that do not exist at present and are considered as missing links. In its annex III, the Agreement stipulates the requirements for the classification of E waterways. In total, 29,172 km of European inland waterways have been earmarked by Governments as E waterways. The above length excludes the double counting of sections on which two or more E waterways overlap.
