No driverless Tube trains before 2020, says transport boss

Driverless Tube trains will not run on London’s network until 2020 at the earliest, London Underground and London Rail managing director Mike Brown told London Assembly members last week.

Speaking in front of the Assembly’s transport committee Brown added that there were no plans at present to test driverless trains on the Tube network and all options for using new technology would be analysed in a “considered, calm way”.  

London mayor has pledged to introduce automatic train control, already in place on certain Tube lines,  on 48% of rolling stock by the end of 2014.
