New Delhi, Metro Rail News: The Maharashtra government is in an effort to reduce the distance between Mumbai to Pune, from 3 hours to 25 minutes. For this, the government is working on the Hyperloop project. After the Hyperloop project, the distance between the two metros will be decided in just 17 to 25 minutes. The government of Maharashtra has given it the status of Public Infrastructure Project. Private players will be able to participate in setting up this ambitious project.
