Hyperloop Planned for England and Australia
The Hyperloop might be coming to England and Australia. News articles reveal that plans to implement the high-speed transport in both countries are well advanced
Transport for the North; the government agency that handles transportation in Northern England, is open to building a Hyperloop system connecting Manchester and London, The Daily Mirror reported. Some of the plans call for a Hyperloop that would eventually turn Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds together to create a single city.
Another result would be to turn those cities into bedroom communities for the notoriously overpriced London. Since housing prices are far cheaper in the North than in London; it is not hard to imagine the system changing the dynamics of the entire country.
British Hyperloop backers think the system would reduce travel time between Manchester and London to 18 minutes. Manchester is about 262 kilometers (163 miles) from the capital. There are no concrete plans but representatives of a government agency called Innovate UK; which buys new technology for Her Majesty’s government, have met with Hyperloop One, The Mirror reported.
Some Hyperloop backers believe that the system would be a cheaper alternative to the HS2, an expensive high-speed rail scheme now underway in the UK.
Hyperloop Down Under
The Hyperloop proposal in Australia calls for a line connecting Melbourne and Brisbane. Melbourne is about 1100 kilometers down the coast from Brisbane.
An organization called VicHyper is pushing the Australian government to dump plans for a high-speed rail system that would connect several of the nation’s largest cities, The Courier & Mail reported. Among other things that would reduce the trip between Brisbane and Sydney to less than an hour, a trip from Brisbane to Melbourne would take around two hours.
VicHyper laid out plans for a Hyperloop system connecting Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane that it claims would cost be about half the price of high-speed rail. The Australian government estimated that high speed rail would cost around $114 billion to build. Hyperloop would cost around $68.4 billion to build.
VicHyper is a group of 25 engineering, design and business students from Melbourne’s RMIT University. Vic stands for Victoria, the state where Melbourne is located. It looks as if Hyperloop is gaining popularity all over the world.https://geekcrunch.reviews/hyperloop-planned-england-australia/InnovationBritish Hyperloop,Hyperloop Down Under,Hyperloop One,Hyperloop proposal in Australia,Hyperloop system,Hyperloop system connecting Manchester and London,Innovate UK,The Hyperloop,Transport for the North,VicHyperThe Hyperloop might be coming to England and Australia.
