Pune: The first phase of the 15-km Hyperloop one track in Pune, from Balewadi to Gahunje will serve as the trial track for passenger moment test.

Kiran Gitte, the commissioner of the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA), said: “a transactional advisor will be appointed within a fortnight and the track will be appointed within a fortnight and the track will be ready by next year.”

The advisor company would need to have prior experience in handline high-speed transport, as the PMRDA itself does not have the adequate know-how on the subject. The chosen firm have the adequate know-how on the subject. The chosen firm would be required help with project structuring, finances as well as engaging in other parameters. It must also work closely with the Virgin Hyperloop team.

The complete trial track project will be funded by Virgin Hyperloop One which will be around Rs 3,000 crore. PMRDA will provide land and they have two available options. one along the Pune-Mumbai Expressway and the other along the old Pune-Mumbai highway.

Gitte said “The demonstration track will be constructed in such a way that it eventually becomes part of the final Hyperloop route”

According to the studies of PMRDA more than 3 lakh commuters and 1.10 lakh vehicles — including 80,000 buses and 6,000 cars between Mumbai and Pune. The futuristic Hyperloop technology promises to reduce the travel time to just 25 minutes for the busy cities.

Gitte said “Passenger trials will have to be conducted here for the first phase of the Pune-Mumbai hyperloop route,”

The report for the trial run is prepared by PMRDA and Hyperloop One and it will be submitted by next month. And the estimate for trail track is Rs 3,000 crore.

PMRDA and Hyperloop One are working together to finalize the route.

Gitte said “The demonstration track will be constructed in such a way that it eventually becomes part of the final Hyperloop route”
