US-based Hyperloop One has unveiled the first look of a fully-operational Hyperloop model linking Abu Dhabi and Dubai ahead of its official launch on November 7.
In a video posted on YouTube (see below), Jakob Lange, director of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) Ideas, the firm involved in designing of the system, says: “Making a Hyperloop here would be a very natural step in that sort of evolution of this place the city and thee region.”
The plan shows the Hyperloop connecting three airports in the UAE – Abu Dhabi Airport, Al Maktoum Airport and Dubai Airport – with future cargo port connections for Khailfa Port and Jebel Ali Port.
“We are in a new time now where you can develop a new transportation system in very few years and change the world. We’re not waiting for new technology like carbon nanofibers or anything in order to do this, says Lange, adding, “We have everything we need to do it.” More info
