Richard Branson reaches out to Nitin Gadkari for hyperloop

NEW DELHI: Richard Branson-owned Virgin Group has reached out to transport minister Nitin Gadkari with a proposal to establish a hyperloop transportation system between New Delhi and Mumbai, after the Maharashtra government decided to shelve the company’s proposed project in the state last month.

A source in the know told ET that Virgin Group has approached Gadkari—who is known for his openness to adopting new technologies—to develop a 1,300-km line between the national capital and Mumbai.
