Hype on Hyperloop

Andhra Pradesh government plans to connect Amaravati and Vijayawada with Hyperloop, a ‘tube modular transport system’ that runs free of friction, invented by Tesla. This will supposedly cover the distance of 35 km between the two cities in just five minutes. Of course, it is still on trial in different countries.

The AP Economic Development Board (AP-EDB) and the US- based Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Amaravati on 06 September. But the MoU did not disclose the probable cost of the project that will be taken up in the public-private- partnership mode with the funding primarily from private investors.

Under the MoU, the HTT will construct and build the first Hyperloop in India after a six-month feasibility study of the surrounding cityscapes to create the best route between the two cities.

Following his first interaction with HTT executives during the World Economic Forum in Switzerland in January, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu held another round of talks with them recently.

The AP-EDB, along with the state government, will assist HTT with all regulatory requirements and develop and implement Hyperloop in Amaravati.
