What is the modern transport bill?
Driverless cars, space tourism and zero-emission vehicles are all part of the UK government’s grand transport plans. What does it all mean? Here’s our explainer
The modern transport bill is the UK’s push to be at the forefront of the international transport technology revolution: developing driverless cars and launching a commercial spaceport.
All these initiatives were announced in the Queen’s speech in May 2016 and continue to be pursued by Theresa May’s government, which also wants the UK to play a part in drone production, an industry worth $4bn a year globally and estimated to rise to $414bn over the next 10 years.
