#Berlin’s car ban campaign: ‘It’s about how we want to live, breathe and play’ | #Germany | The Guardian


I wonder if this could be made to work and whether it could be translated to other major cities?

UK government calls for action plan following Class 800 train cracking and subsequent disruption

The UK Rail Minister has requested a comprehensive plan from Hitachi to identify the extent of cracking found on some Class 800 Series trains, and has asked the rail industry to urgently set out a strategy to resolve prolonged passenger and network disruption.

It was announced on 8 May 2021 that, following maintenance checks on the Hitachi Class 800 Series trains in the UK, cracks were identified on part of the chassis of some trains, resulting in the vast majority of Great Western Railway (GWR) and a significant number of London North Eastern Railway (LNER) and TransPennine Express (TPE) trains to be taken out of service to undergo further inspection.

A spokesperson for Hitachi Rail has said: “Safety is our number one priority and, as a precaution, the decision was taken to halt the entry into service of our intercity fleets pending inspection. We understand the frustration caused, and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to passengers and operators. Having been cleared for service, some trains are now running again across the network. We are working as quickly and safely as possible to investigate the issue across the remainder of the fleets.”
