IN THIS ISSUE
The Indian Government recently approved a consortium between Virgin Hyperloop One and DP World which could result in the construction of the world's first passenger hyperloop system. We take a deep dive into this project and find out how the proposed link could go about cutting commuter times between Pune and Mumbai to under 35 minutes.
In South Africa, plans to extend Johannesburg’s metro could help rejuvenate inner city business and alleviate traffic congestion, while in the US we look into whether boxcar leasing regulations should be overhauled to incentivise new fleet investments.
Also in this issue: we explore the UK railway network’s potential as a natural habitat for wildlife, investigate how a new noise mapping tool could help mitigate noisy railways, and shine a spotlight on some of the best tram systems at cities around the world.
