Hyperloop Transportation Technologies

While speaking at BaseStone's Construction Disrupt Event about the future of transportation technologies, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies COO Bibop Gresta announced that construction on the first Hyperloop track will begin in the next few weeks. The initial focus will be on building a five-mile test track that is expected to transport 10 million people throughout its trial phase. The construction is expected to last two and a half years. Initially the tracks won't be tested at full speed with passengers, but will rather go only at a modest 160 MPH for safety reasons. The test track will be constructed in California with an estimated cost of $150 million. Another track will be built in Texas for companies that want to test pod designs for the Hyperloop system
