The Weekly Roundup

This week saw the roll out of George Osborne’s ‘final Budget’ pre-election so what did we make of it? If you missed it, we bring you what you need to know in our weekly roundup.

Announced was a fuel duty freeze and £100m funding for driverless cars – further backing to help the UK become the leader in autonomous vehicle technology. Plans to revolutionise travel in the North of England were also introduced to bring us up to speed with the South. Do you like the sound of Oyster-style smart travel cards?

In other news, thousands of drivers got to witness the near-total Solar Eclipse during rush hour after being warned not to take their eyes off the road or look directly in the sky earlier in the week.
