Bristol has surpassed London as the number 1 Smart City of United Kingdom. The fresh ranking has been issued by UK Smart Cities Index. The report is based on the survey  of 20 cities and their strategies, key projects and how well they are using digital technology to improve citizen services.

London has been pushed to second spot. Other UK cities which made it to the list are Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Nottingham, Peterborough, Cambridge, Oxford, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Newcastle.

Bristol has taken the numero uno position due to its various citizens centric innovative programmes. ‘The Bristol Is Open’ project provides a large scale connectivity and the new City Operations Centre ensures that services are effectively implemented. The city is also leading in  data access, energy innovation and community engagement.

The Smart City Operations Centre has opened  bringing together the council’s Emergency Control Centre, Traffic Control Centre and Community Safety (CCTV) Control Rooms for the first time along with other citizen service providers. The centre also provides services such as telecare, alarm and security monitoring and lone worker support with almost 60,000 welfare and telecare calls received every month.
