(1)With reference to the reply to question 898 on 20 April 2018, do the operating costs stated only include the limited kerbside services or a fully operational phase 1; if so, how is the huge cost of limited kerbside services justified; (2) do the operational cost include the paying of consultants; if so, (a) what amount is to be paid to consultants in each year, (b) on what date will the consultants contracts come to an end and (c) what is the purpose of employing consultants in each case?

Reply from the Minister of Transport on 3 Apr 2019

Are there any driverless cars on the country’s roads; if not, are there any such plans; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply from the Minister of Transport on 3 Apr 2019

There are currently no driverless cars on the country’s roads. Yes, there are plans but not in the immediate due to policy and legislative amendments that would need to take place to bring about this realisation.
