Milton Keynes has been chosen as the location for the UK’s new £150 million Catapult centre for integrated transport systems – one of the first of its kind in the world.
Milton Keynes was selected following an extensive nationwide search. The final decision was based on a range of criteria including: ease of access for the transport community, a skilled talent pool with the relevant expertise, travel times from locations across the UK and abroad, and the availability of high quality business space to set up the world-class centre.
The Transport Systems Catapult will provide a national hub for transport modelling and monitoring – testing latest theories on how transport systems interact and function against real-world demonstrators. This will help UK businesses to develop effective and sustainable solutions to our transport needs – for both freight and people. Click here for press release
