Sharjah unveils high-speed rail passenger pods


The Sharjah Innovation and Technology Park (SITP) unveiled a high-speed rail passenger pod that can travel at 600 kilometres per hour and revolutionize passenger services.

Currently, research is being conducted at the $14 million (AED 51m) site. In January, it was announced that a test track of 20km will be built to run the high-speed “uFlash” pods.

Dr Anatoli Unitsky, the Belarusian inventor of the system said that the said project will cost $230m to build a 20km test track to take the pods up to 500kph.

Designers remain confident that a longer track would allow further progress of the technology.
