A magnetically levitated train line between Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka has been in development since as far back as the 1970s. Now the Central Japan Railway (aka JR Tokai) recently got the go-ahead to “to proceed with construction” from the Japanese government.
The world’s fastest trains, maglev trains travel without touching the ground. Instead, they run levitated above their guideway by using repulsive and attractive electromagnetic forces between superconducting magnets on board the vehicle and coils on the ground.
The 9-trillion-yen ($112.44-billion) project will have trains travelling at 505 kilometers (313 miles) when finally built, going from Tokyo to Nagoya in about 40 minutes and Tokyo to Osaka in 67 minutes.
The Tokyo-Nagoya line is expected to start carrying passengers in 2027, and the Tokyo-Osaka one in 2045.
This is a great technological development here in Japan especially to JR , a railway
company wherein my 2nd has been recently employ, his a newly hire employee of
this company and the reason why I becoming curious even with this news, I hope his aware of this and hoping that on the day that this Maglev Train runs in the JR
railways his still in this company, it’s great. Lesser risk in the speed that will bring you to a certain destination.Good luck and more power to your projects.
