Hyperloop project: Virgin founder Richard Branson to meet CM Uddhav Thackeray

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson will meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on December 12 in an attempt to ‘clear any misunderstanding if any’ over the ambitious hyperloop project that aims to connect Mumbai with Pune.

Soon after the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition of Shiv Sena, the NCP and Congress (I) formed the government in Maharashtra, in late November, there were talks of the new CM scrapping the Rs 60,500-crore project.
