HIGH SPEED RAILWAY ROUTE FROM CHINA TO PORT ZARUBINO TO BE PRESENTED AT THE EASTERN ECONOMIC FORUM
29 July 2016
The pilot line of the Hyperloop project must be in Primorye, informs Новости@Mail.ru.
“Our partners have promised to elaborate upon the parameters of this project, in order to present it at the Eastern Economic Forum. But before investing in the project, we must see how it works and then make our decision. These are giant investments and we’ll hardly find any investor willing to risk such huge amounts of money without a clear vision of how the pilot project operates. This is the very pilot project we proposed”, stated Maxim Sokolov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation.
Earlier, President Putin held a short meeting with co-founder of Hyperloop One Shervin Pishevar, as part of SPIEF 2016, having promised his support for the high speed freight transport project. The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation proposed that China build a pilot section of the super-high-speed railway from China to Zarubino ports in the Primorye Region.
The project authors point out that the new transport vehicle will be twice as fast as a plane and 3–4 times faster than a regular high-speed train.
