Virgin hyperloop one and the Pune metropolitan region development authority (PMRDA) signed the pre-feasibility study in November 2017 and on this basis they will build the findings route alignment including the economic and commercial aspects of the route environment impacts, the regulatory and safety framework and cost and funding strategies to deliver the project. All these things will be defined and analyzed by the virgin hyperloop one’s feasibility tram which consists of world-class experts from Systra Turner & Townsend and KPMG.

The virgin hyper loops one significant portion of the system components are to be expectedly manufactured locally, mainly in Maharashtra creating manufacturing and new high technology jobs.

The Hyperloop will connect 26 million and the route will link central Pune, Navi Mumbai International airport and Mumbai in 25 minutes.

The high capacity passenger and cargo hyperloop route will provide citizens social and economic mobility and greater opportunities as the route will eventually support 150 million passengers trips annually and will save more than 90 million hours of travel time.

The Hyperloop system will also have a pack transportation of light goods between the port of Mumbai and Pune which will create a powerful determination for on-demand deliveries, supply chains, and next-generation co-ordination.

According to an initial pre-feasibility study completed by virgin hyperloop one the Pune-Mumbai route could include in Rs 350,000 in benefit of socio-economic which will result in accident reduction, time-saving etc over 30 years of operation.

The Hyperloop system is 100% electrical which will be easy for the expressway congestion and will reduce up to 15,0000 tons annually of greenhouse gas emission.

Virgin hyperloop one’s CEO said that Traditionally, transportation has been very vertically integrated. With a wealth of talent and technological prowess right here in India, we’re looking for local partners to scale an integrated supply chain ecosystem. The State of Maharashtra is positioning itself at the epicenter of a new global supply chain.”
