India's first Hyperloop to connect Amrawati and Vijaywada
The Andhra Pradesh government joined hands with US-based Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) to introduce the futuristic "Hyperloop" transportation system in the state capital region, Amrawati.
If everything goes well, this will be the first Hyperloop project to be implemented in India.
35 kms in five minutes
Hyperloop is proposed to be introduced between the city centres of Vijayawada and Amaravati. It will supposedly cover the distance of over 35 km only in five minutes.
When will the project start?
Under the MoU, HTT will conduct a feasibility study from the next month to analyse the surrounding cityscapes to create the best route between the two cities. After a six-month feasibility study, HTT will start building the first Hyperloop in India.
