Bran­son’s 670mph train aim

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

RICHARD Bran­son has bought into a Hyper­loop firm and said Lon­don to Scot­land jour­neys could be cut to 45 min­utes.

His Virgin Group has teamed up with LA firm Hyper­loop One to work on tech­nol­ogy that pro­pels pods at up to 670mph through low-pres­sure tubes. The firm aims to have “op­er­a­tional sys­tems” by 2021.

Sir Richard said: “This tech­nol­ogy will change trans­porta­tion as we know it.”

Lon­don to Ed­in­burgh trains take four hours, 20 min­utes.
