Virgin Hyperloop launches new plan to bring high-speed travel to India’s tech hub – Bengaluru.
As per reports, “UAE-backed Virgin Hyperloop will assess plans to develop a super-fast route from Kempegowda International Airport to Bengaluru – the country’s sprawling tech hub”.
A hyperloop-connected airport would dramatically improve the delivery of cargo and create an ultra-efficient suply chain. It is expected to take 12 months to complete. It could transport thousands of passengers from the airport to the city centre in under 10 minutes- compared to more than 45 minutes by road.
An agreement was signed between Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, chairman of Virgin Hyperloop, and TM Vijay Bhaskar, chairman of the board of directors at Bengaluru airport, to launch a pre-feasibility study for the project.
