Dubai’s Road Authority denies Hyperloop rumour

Dubai: There are no plans as yet to build a Hyperloop line between Dubai and the other emirates, announced the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

On Thursday, the RTA took to its official Twitter account to confirm that contrary to what has been circulating online, there are no plans build a Hyperloop Line to connect Abu Dhabi International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central.

In a series of tweets, the RTA said “there is no specific route for operating the Hyperloop system in Dubai or between Dubai and other emirates.

“The system is still under the process of research and development, and RTA is closely following the developments in this technology, and will study several options for determining the route which will be announced in the future.”

The RTA also stressed that such types of projects must be preceded by careful planning and engineering studies, as well as feasibility studies, “to reduce the potential risks and maximize the benefit of the project.”
