The rise of the mega-city

CAR (UK) - - Tech -

All the pro­jec­tions point to the global pop­u­la­tion con­tin­u­ing to in­crease, with a dis­pro­por­tion­ate num­ber of those peo­ple end­ing up in cities, many of which are al­ready jammed up with tra‰ic. Leg­is­la­tion can force cars to get cleaner, but clean tra‰ic is still tra‰ic. The so­lu­tion is likely to in­volve al­liances be­tween car mak­ers, city plan­ners and pub­lic trans­port providers, with their com­pet­ing agen­das.

But of course not ev­ery­body will live in cities, mega or oth­er­wise. How con­nected will ru­ral Nor­folk or Corn­wall ever re­ally be, let alone Siberia or Bo­livia?
