英媒:美国首条高铁将耗资100亿美元,计划落户密苏里州

The 'heartland hyperloop': Firm behind Elon Musk's radical travel system says $10bn Missouri route could be the first in America

“心脏地带超级高铁”:埃隆•马斯克激进旅行系统背后的公司表示,耗资100亿美元的密苏里线可能成为美国首条高铁

 

Missouri could be the first state in America to get a Hyperloop.

密苏里州可能成为美国首个拥有高铁线路的州。

Virgin Hyperloop One said it had identified a 'viable route' running along the I-70 corridor, the major highway traversing Missouri, that would connect Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis.

超级高铁公司Virgin Hyperloop One表示,已经确定了一条“可行的路线”,这条路线沿着贯穿密苏里州的主要高速公路-70号州际高速公路(I-70),将连接堪萨斯城、哥伦比亚和圣路易斯。

Virgin Hyperloop One, which already has a working demo track in Nevada, claims it will have the first passenger-bearing loop built by the mid-2020s - and the 'heartland hyperloop' is now a front runner in the race.

Virgin Hyperloop One在内华达州已经有一条试运行轨道,该公司宣称将在本世纪20年代中期建成首个搭载乘客的高铁轨道,而“心脏地带超级高铁”(heartland Hyperloop)目前是这场竞赛的领跑者。

The technology, developed by Elon Musk, is now being pursued by several firms.

这项由埃隆•马斯克开发的技术目前正被几家公司所追逐。

It would transport people at roughly 700mph between distant locations through closed off vacuum tubes.

这项技术能够以大约每小时700英里(约1127公里)的速度通过封闭的真空管将人们运送到遥远的地方。

The initial cost estimate for building the I-70 hyperloop route would be $30 million to $40 million per mile of track, the report found - giving a total price tag of $7 billion to $10 billion.

修建I-70超级高铁线路的初步成本估计为每英里3000万至4000万美元,总造价为70亿至100亿美元。

Dozens of possible routes were proposed across the United States, including connections between Los Angeles and San Francisco; New York City and Washington, D.C.; Denver and Houston.

有几十条穿越美国的路线被提议,包括洛杉矶至旧金山、纽约至华盛顿特区、丹佛至休斯顿。

Further feasibility studies will likely be released within the next year for states like Colorado, Ohio and Texas, said a Hyperloop One employee, but Missouri has the distinction of the first.

Hyperloop One的一名员工表示,未来一年,公司可能会为科罗拉多州、俄亥俄州和得克萨斯州等州发布进一步的可行性研究报告,但密苏里州的报告是第一份。

The firm says the report is a major step forward for the transport technology invented by Elon Musk.

It examined the social impact, station locations, regulatory issues, route alignments and rights-of-way associated with the route.

该公司表示,这份报告是埃隆·马斯克发明的运输技术向前迈出的重要一步。它审查了与该路线有关的社会影响、车站位置、管制问题、路线校准和通行权。

'A feasibility study of this depth represents the first phase of actualization of a full-scale commercial hyperloop system, both for passengers and cargo in the United States,' said Virgin Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd.

'We are especially proud that Missouri, with its iconic status in the history of U.S. transportation as the birthplace of the highway system, could be the keystone of a nation-wide network.

'The resulting socio-economic benefits will have enormous regional and national impact.'

Virgin Hyperloop One 首席执行官罗伯特·劳埃德表示:“这种深度可行性研究代表在美国实现全面客运和货运商业超级高铁系统的第一阶段。我们尤其感到自豪的是,作为高速公路系统诞生地的密苏里州在美国运输史上具有标志性地位,它可能成为全国交通网络的基石。由此产生的社会经济效益将对地区和国家产生巨大影响。”

The study found Travel time between Kansas City and St. Louis could be as little as 28 minutes, compared to 3 ½ hours today, and travel time for trips from either Kansas City or St. Louis to Columbia could be 15 minutes, compared to nearly 2 hours.

研究发现堪萨斯城和圣路易斯之间乘高铁旅行时间需要28分钟,而开车需要3个半小时,从堪萨斯城或圣路易斯到哥伦比亚旅行时间乘高铁可能需要15分钟,而开车需要近2小时。

The cost to take a hyperloop from St. Louis to Kansas City could be lower than the cost to drive (based on gas alone), while still cutting down the time by three hours, it concluded.

从圣路易斯到堪萨斯城乘坐超级高铁的成本可能低于驾车成本(只计算油费),而且能将旅程缩短3个小时。

The independent report, authored by global infrastructure solutions company Black & Veatch, analyzes a proposed route through the I-70 corridor, the major highway traversing Missouri, and verifies the favorable safety and sustainability opportunities this new mode of transportation offers.

这份由全球基础设施解决方案公司博莱克威奇工程设计有限公司(Black & Veatch)撰写的独立报告分析了一条穿越密苏里州主要高速公路I-70的拟议路线,并验证了这种新型交通方式所提供的安全和可持续性发展机会。

'Black & Veatch worked collaboratively with stakeholders across the region to examine the technology, constructability and the economics associated with designing and building a Missouri Hyperloop,' said Steve Edwards, Chairman and CEO of Black & Veatch.

'We found this project is a case of solid engineering meeting up with Virgin Hyperloop One's innovative vision to create a network transforming the very concept of community.'

博莱克威奇工程设计有限公司董事长兼首席执行官史蒂夫•爱德华兹表示,博莱克威奇工程设计有限公司与该地区的利益相关者合作,研究了设计和建造密苏里高铁技术、建造和经济可行性。我们发现这是一个可靠的工程项目,与Virgin Hyperloop One的创新愿景--旨在创建一个改变社区概念的网络相符合。

Two other states are currently studying hyperloop through in-depth feasibility studies—Ohio and Colorado.

In addition, Ohio is also participating in the first U.S. Environmental Impact Studies (EIS) of a hyperloop system and Texas has announced its intent to start the process.

另外两个州——俄亥俄州和科罗拉多州——正在通过深入的可行性研究研究超级高铁。此外,俄亥俄州还参加了美国第一次关于高铁系统的环境影响研究,德克萨斯州也宣布了打算启动这一研究过程。

However, experts have warned the technology is likely to appear elsewhere in the world first.

"I think the U.S. will be one of the last places where you'll see this," said Rick Geddes, director of the Cornell Infrastructure Policy program, told CNBC.

The biggest obstacles facing hyperloop aren't the technical ones, he said, but instead policy ones.

然而,专家警告称,这项技术可能首先出现在世界其他地方。康奈尔基础设施政策项目主任里克•格迪斯对CNBC表示:“我认为美国将是最后实现高铁通行的地方之一。”他还补充说,高铁面临的最大障碍不是技术上的,而是政策上的。

How much we(UK) paying for our new high speed train track. Wouldn't it be better to invest in future technology now and not when the train has left the station

Not even close. SpaceX now has the majority of the global commercial launch market, Tesla Model 3 is the best selling premium compact in the USA. I follow several car blogs and forums, and hardcore gearheads are buying the Tesla instead of the BMW M3 and Audi S4 simply because it's faster, not to mention cheaper and more reliable.

@magacitizen离破产还差远了,SpaceX现在占据了全球商业发射市场的大部分,特斯拉Model 3是美国最畅销的高端紧凑型车。我关注了几家汽车博客和论坛,铁杆变速箱迷们都在买特斯拉而不是宝马M3和奥迪S4,因为特斯拉更快,更便宜、更可靠。

Now if we had some real clever people in this country this is what we should be building instead of HS2 with minimum interference of the ground and buildings and it would be truly faster not just a few minutes.

While I love new technology, the IMF recently revealed a report stating that we're headed down the road of another Great Depression - and given what's happening with China's economy in the last few days, there's shortly not going to be anything close to the amount of money required to even start the project, let alone finish it.

虽然我喜欢新技术,但国际货币基金组织最近公布的一份报告指出,我们正走向另一场大萧条考虑到中国经济在过去几天所发生的情况,短期内,甚至连启动该项目所需的资金都将达不到,更不用说完成该项目了。
