If this report by News18 is to be believed then the Andhra Pradesh government could deploy Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) to develop a Hyperloop project that connects Amravati and Vijayawada in mere 5 minutes.
This news comes after the metro project to connect both cities faced several obstacles.
The report adds that the Andhra Pradesh Economic Development Board has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with HTT which proposes Hyperloop connectivity between the city centres of Vijaywada and Amravati. It will reportedly be a privately funded project and will use a Public Private Partnership model. It will begin with a six-month feasibility study.
Billionaire investor Elon Musk had proposed the Hyperloop concept, who has now made it open source. HTT has already inked a deal to build one between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
