Pune-Mumbai Hyperloop Project Rushing to its Completion!

The Pune-Mumbai hyperloop project has currently reached the midpoint of the in-depth feasibility study, which is on track to finish this summer. Recently, Maharashtra chief minister, Devendra Fadnavis, and representatives from the state government including the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA), visited Virgin Hyperloop One at their full-scale hyperloop test site in the Nevada Desert.
India’s first hyperloop route will link central Pune, Navi Mumbai International Airport, and Mumbai in 25 minutes, eventually supporting 150 million passenger trips annually, saving more than 90 million hours of travel time along the way. The hyperloop system will also have the potential for the rapid movement of palletized freight and light cargo between the Port of Mumbai and Pune, for on-demand deliveries, supply chains, and next-generation logistics. Moreover, a significant proportion of the Virgin Hyperloop One system components are expected to be manufactured locally, especially in Maharashtra creating new jobs.
It is said that the Pune-Mumbai route could result in Rs 350,000 crore in socio-economic benefits (time savings, emissions and accident reduction, operational cost savings, etc) over 30 years of operation. The 100 per cent electric hyperloop system will also ease severe expressway congestion and could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 150,000 tons annually, according to Virgin Group.The state of Maharashtra is positioning itself at the epicenter of a new global supply chain
