ULTRA-FAST TRAINS

The future is finally before our eyes, showing us endless possibilities of what is to come. With science and technology becoming part of everyday activities, things like public transportation are changing the way they are viewed.

As part of the long-term projects of the European Union, the railway industry of Lyon (France) began with the design of high-speed train projects that connect the entire country.

This is not something new. Already the EU has countless railways connecting it. However, these projects involve speed, operability and efficiency on an immeasurable scale.

Now, how much do these projects have of reality and how much of a futuristic fantasy? CNN answers this question with a clear fact. To illustrate, I ask you to think of the European Union of 40 years ago. Without a doubt, the investments of TGV (France), ICE (Germany) and AVE (Spain) have certainly made a considerable difference.

Therefore, it is not unreasonable to think of these projects as a new turning point in transportation as we know it. When big companies start investing, they are able to achieve even the impossible in record time.

 

SPEED AND ECOLOGY

SPEED AND ECOLOGY

Large companies and project planners are aware of a key fact: people today want (and to some extent need) immediacy.

Given the slowness of current road and rail systems, the most popular option for travel is by plane, and this involves both longer stretches and intercity routes porno français.

Now what is the problem? According to statistical reports from the European Union, the total emissions of CO2 from transport, being an issue of vital importance for people and government entities.

The idea is that, as these systems are more complex and effective, the environmental footprint that the aviation industry leaves on the environment can be reduced.

 

TOO AMBITIOUS?

Given the large scale of these projects, reservations have been generated among important social, political and economic figures regarding the feasibility of the project.

After all, this is not the first time that the EU has promised too much on the railways and not kept its word. And what is perhaps more alarming, moreover, is the fact that the delivery times are too ambitious to even consider them a real objective or reference.

In addition, the project poses certain financial risks as it is a never-before-seen railway project, which could deplete reserves.

All that remains is to wait for more details and assess whether these futuristic transportation projects will become a reality or remain a project.

Do you think the project will be completed in the next 10 or 20 years?
