Unions say the document proves the idea is a "politically-driven fantasy"
Boris Johnson’s ambition to change London Underground to driverless trains took a blow today with a leaked report claiming it would cost £7 billion and show “poor value for money”.
It concluded that the case for converting old lines "is not financially positive given the high capital costs", although it could make sense to include driverless capability on new lines and upgrades.
A TfL spokesman confirmed that the analysis was genuine and said it was prepared for the Government-commissioned review of TfL finances.
What most on here long suspected , driverless tube trains are an ideological driven disaster unlikely to see the light of day any time soon.
