The Road and urban public transport terminals, station, and transshipment centres were mainly established at the meeting points of different traffic lines.  If we compare the terror-threat against infrastructure, building, and vehicles, then we can see that much more terrorist attacks were directed against the vehicles, than against bridges or tunnels.
