Most of this urban growth is expected to happen in cities which do not even exist yet, he pointed out at the global summit of the International Transport Forum (ITF).

Passenger transport vehicle numbers are, accordingly, expected to increase four or five times and he cautioned that cities and authorities do not have the technology to deal with the related demands.
