Our vision. By 2050 we will have stronger rail links to other cities, a mass transit system within the city, improved traffic management systems, city-wide ultra-fast broadband, automated vehicles, low-emission technologies and more will all have played a part in removing the obstacles and barriers to people connecting, whilst making connectivity as clean and green a process as possible.
