The future of highspeed rail
This paper explores options for high speed rail within the UK including maglev, HS2/3 and hyperloop.
- There are three options for highspeed rail in the UK: Maglev, HS2/3 and Hyperloop.
- HS2 and 3 use proven technologies but risk being dated once the lines are eventually built.
- Maglev is less proven but has also been used in several lines. This type of transport probably strikes the best balance between older types of railways such as HS2/3 and newer technologies such as Hyperloop.
- Hyperloop is faster than Maglev but has been tested less which is a barrier to using it for a large line.
