Futuristic 'Hyperloop' system could cut Edinburgh to London journey time to half an hour

Jan 8, 2019 · standard.co.uk


A futuristic Hyperloop transport system in the UK could slash journey times across the country with a trip from Edinburgh to London cut to just 29 minutes.

The mode of transport, first proposed by Elon Musk in 2012, is a system of tubes through which a pod could travel at high speeds of up to 600-plus miles per hour.

Some journeys, such as from Nottingham to London or Sheffield to London, would be ten times quicker if the UK had a Hyperloop system.

Edinburgh to London, a 330-mile journey that typically takes around four hours and 20 minutes on the train, would take only 29 minutes on the Hyperloop.
