24th May 2017

London has seen rapid change over the past 25 years, reversing decades of decline through a combination of globalisation and adopting ambitious strategies to help unlock growth, embrace diversity and nurture talent. The devolution of powers to London through the creation of the Mayor for London and the London Assembly has been a catalyst in transforming the city. London’s Mayors have been at the centre of this change, using its relatively limited powers to showcase what can be done.

Passenger night trains carrying sleeping cars or couchette stock have been operated across Europe for over a century. Some railways continue to provide them as part of their long-distance services, or by agreement with neighbouring railways. Others have cut them back, because they are not profitable or not supported by a social, economic or environmental case.

The mass adoption of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) — often called automated, self-driving, or driverless vehicles — could radically change the way we travel and have a significant influence on the evolution of the urban and non-urban landscape. Without the need for human supervision or operation, every person will be a passenger, and cars will be able to drive with no occupants at all. This will give drivers more leisure time, widen mobility to citizens currently unable to drive, and improve road safety.

Transformational transport infrastructure projects are under way across Europe to meet our increasing demand for travel and city aspirations for greater connectivity.
