New research: hyperloop has huge economic impact on Amsterdam Metropolitan Area
An innovative solution such as the hyperloop offers agglomeration benefits on account of its enabling quick and efficient (inter)national links over land and reducing travelling times from hours to just minutes. The realization of a Hyperloop strengthens the position of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (MRA) by connecting economic areas such as the German Ruhr area. This is the result of a study conducted by Hardt Hyperloop in collaboration with the province of North-Holland.
Several development perspectives have been explored for the MRA for 2040. Four perspectives outline development scenarios in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area in the future. One of the perspectives focuses on the Compact Metropolis and, in turn, the accessibility and connectivity with both national and international economic clusters. Alongside this study, Noord-Holland and Hardt also evaluated the role of the hyperloop as an innovative and sustainable solution for the MRA.
