The Maharashtra government on Thursday entered
into a tie-up with Virgin Hyperloop One for exploring the possibility of connecting Mumbai
and Pune with hyperloop transportation system. The US-based company will conduct a preliminary
study in the region. The Mumbai-Pune corridor is one of the busier
ones in the country for commuters, with more than 50,000 passenger vehicles using the expressway.
It currently takes anything from three to four hours to cover the 160km, of which 94.5km
are on the expressway. Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation
which carries passengers, freights in pods via electro-magnetic propulsion through low
pressure tube. It is fast, having speed up to 670 mph (1,080 kmh). At the same time,
it can be developed at 2/3rd cost of high-speed rail systems
With speeds two to three times faster than high-speed rail, and being fully autonomous.
By reducing travel time to under 20 minutes, a hyperloop route will help intensify the
connectivity between the metropolitan regions of Pune and Mumbai, transforming the two cities
into India’s first and largest megapolis. Other two routes planned are between chennai
and banglore. This total setup is proposed to come in action
before 2024. Hope you liked the information I have shared
