Waterways & Canals: The French natural and man-made waterways network is the largest in Europe extending to over 8,500 kilometres (5,300 mi). Approximately 20% of the network is suitable for commercial boats of over 1000 tonnes and the VNF (English: Navigable Waterways of France, the French navigation authority) has an ongoing programme of maintenance and modernisation to increase depth of waterways, widths of locks and headroom under bridges to support France's strategy of encouraging freight onto water.
