Hyperloop Australia

There has been a lot of talk about High Speed Rail and also about Elon Musk's Hyperloop. These proposals generally extend to Melbourne, but not to Adelaide. Shouldn't we at least have Adelaide included in the feasibility study to assess whether it is actually feasible?

Hyperloop will require an enormous amount of steel to build. The mothballed capacity at Whyalla Steelworks would be able to supply 400 km of Hyperloop tube per year. Hyperloop is slightly faster than air travel and uses zero fossil fuels, making it an obvious choice. We need a Hyperloop feasibility study. Hyperloop-One has been working on a low-cost passive maglev version.
