The 43 km drive between Vijayawada and Amaravathi will be reduced to just 6 minutes with the help of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT)!
What Is It?
Andhra Pradesh government has tied up with Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and will be coming up with the Hyperloop that will run faster than your regular bullet train as well! To give you a perspective, the Hyperloop will run at a speed of 1200 km/hour (faster than a jet aircraft), as compared to the bullet train which runs at only 300-400 km/hour!
What Do We Know So Far?
The possibility of the route between these 2 cities has already been started. The Hyperloop system involves traveling in a pods through sealed pipes at a speed of 1200 km/hour. The travel shall be done in a friction-less environment so any kind of physical or air-related resistance has to be avoided. Along with the route in Andhra Pradesh, here are some more routes and their estimated times –
1. Bengaluru-to-Chennai: 334km in 20 minutes
2. Bengaluru-to-Thiruvananthapuram: 736km in 41 minutes
3. Delhi-to-Mumbai via Jaipur and Indore: 1,317km in 55 minutes
4. Mumbai-to-Chennai via Bengaluru: 1,102km 50 minutes
5. Bengaluru to Chennai: 334km in 20 minutes
The awaited bullet train in India will launch by 2023, but guess what? The faster Hyperloop is estimated to launch by 2021. How cool is that? It will be faster and better!
