Hypertropy of the periphery? Plans to build hyperloop between Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest. Will it lead under Fico’s fence?

A journey from Bratislava to Budapest via Vienna can currently take up to five hours by train. But according to the firm, that journey could be cut to just 18 minutes if and when the system is fully operational.

Slovakia is a technological leader in the automotive, material science and energy industries – many of the areas that are integral to the Hyperloop system. (…)Having a European Hyperloop presence will incentivise collaboration and innovation within Slovakia and throughout Europe

Dirk Ahlborn, Hyperloop’s chief executive
