Soon You'll Be Able To Get From Manchester To London In 18 Minutes

And to Liverpool in ten...


Mancunians could soon be able to travel to London in just 18 minutes if plans for a new high-speed rail system go ahead. 

The 760mph Hyperloop, the brainchild of a US billionaire, is being eyed up by transport bosses in the north of England. 

The futuristic system consists of passenger pods travelling through vacuum tubes and would redefine transport as we know it in this country. 

Similar plans are in place to link Manchester to Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield which would lead to each city being only a 10 minute journey away. 

Hyperloop One boss Alan James said that the plans could transform Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds into 'one city'. 

Really? Quick inter-city travel is all well and good but we'll keep our city just for ourselves thanks!
