There are currently six different Future Transport Project currently in development in the UK, and these include a new generation transport line between Manchester and Liverpool, a Thames cruise, and the London cycling scheme. However, even with these already in the works, there is still a great deal of scope for further future transport innovations, and some big advances have already been made. For instance, the London Olympics’ transport plan, which includes a high-speed rail line, has already begun to benefit the city’s residents as more visitors start arriving. Meanwhile, a Thames cruise that will link London to its closest European port has also begun to gain popularity among tourists.
With so much available space and a lack of road congestion, it’s clear that the transport sector in the UK must continue to grow, especially now that the government has taken a keen interest in improving the country’s infrastructure. This, in turn, means that there is much scope for companies that supply equipment and services to be creative and innovative when it comes to the types of transport projects they’re involved in. The next few years will see a number of exciting, innovative, and completely new transport projects being implemented, and the industry will be looking forward to many of them.
