New report shows how connected autonomous vehicles could transform the UK

A new report says introducing autonomous vehicles in the UK could free up to 15-20% of developable land worth billions to build homes, workplaces and green spaces, as well as completely transform the look and operations of the country’s road network.  Published by the international infrastructure consultancy WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff (WSP-PB), and the internationally-recognized architecture and planning practice, Farrells, the report Making better places: Autonomous vehicles and future opportunities claims this would be made possible as parking requirements will be vastly reduced once the country has access to shared autonomous vehicles (AVs) for everyday journeys.
