Copenhagen Metro, Light Rail and Metro Project, Denmark

Denmark's capital city, København (Copenhagen), took light rail and metro technology to another level in October 2002 by opening an extensive system capable of being operated entirely without drivers.

Light Rail System, operated by Thameslink Rail

London Underground Jubilee Line

Construction of the extension of London Underground's Jubilee Line from Green Park, through south London and Docklands to Stratford, proved a troublesome project.
