PostPost subject: UK Ultraspeed - Change In Status    Posted: 14.05.2013 11:43

Forum members may be interested (if somewhat disheartened) to note that the UK Ultraspeed team have taken the decision no longer to actively promote the maglev solution for the UK high speed transport, despite its many benefits as the faster, better, cheaper and greener option.

UK Government has opted for conventional wheel-on-rail technology, and is moving ahead with its multi-decade High Speed 2 project.

The UKU website home page has therefore been update with the following message.

Update 2013: With High Speed 2, the UK is now committed to conventional wheel-on-rail technology, although there is evidence that, in the UK application, this older and slower technology would have greater capital cost, inferior capacity and city-to-city connectivity, and less efficient whole-life operating economics. This website is therefore now maintained solely for purpose of communicating the benefits which maglev would have delivered in the UK. These benefits remain available, should Government reconsider its technology choice in the future.

In a personal message from the UKU CEO to all Maglevboard members, Dr Alan James said: "a huge thank you goes to the moderators and members of the International Maglevboard for their proactive, informed and highly engaged support."

Links to key Ultraspeed documents will continue to be provided at the bottom of the 500kmh.com home page. Over the coming months, a fuller archive of other UKU information will be created and maintained to provide future researchers with access to information about the project.
