MUNICH MAGLEV

ICE news

Plans for a high speed magnetic levitation railway between Munich Airport and the city centre were revealed at last month's European Local Association. The Transrapid rail line is currently going through planning. Client Bayerische Magnetbahnvorb ereitungsgesellschaft hopes to start building the £1.14bn Maglev system in 2007, with the first passengers using the railway in 2011. Trains will travel at 200km/h and take only 10 minutes to make the journey. This would compete with the current train service, which takes 30 minutes.
