BTS Hyperloop Challenge


BTS Hyperloop Challenge: The BTS is undertaking a project to use its unparalleled expert knowledge to examine the practical challenges and advantages of building tunnels for Hyperloop.

The BTS Hyperloop Challenge project will look at the technical implications, and advantages, of tunnels for Hyperlooop. It will also look at the key cost drivers of tunnelling and the feasibility of the proposals by Elon Musk for cost reduction. In addition, the BTS will look at what innovations and research are in progress that may help in achieving technical feasibility and the sought-after cost reductions.
The project is part-funded by the Institution of Civil Engineers Enabling Fund, with the research work and reporting being carried out by LBA.
