China joins UAE in race to build hyperloop network

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (Hyperloop TT), the company bringing hyperloop to Abu Dhabi, has reached an agreement to build China’s first ultra-high-speed transportation network.

The US-based company, which has an office in Abu Dhabi, will set up a 10km track in a mountainous stretch of Tongren, a city in China’s southwestern Guizhou Province.

It brings the number of Hyperloop TT agreements to 12, following commercial deals to construct 10km tracks in Abu Dhabi and Ukraine earlier this year.
