Not so fast, gentlemen!

Let me translate this article from the German business daily Handelsblatt:

http://www.handelsblatt.com/News/Unt...ers-traum.html

...The European Commision said it does not see any chance that the maglev line will be sponsered with EU money. The EU sponsors only cross-border or research projects, neither of which the Transrapid line in Munich would resemble...

..The mayor of Munich announced that he opposes the project and plans to use all legal means to stop it. He furthermore added that the current cost calculation is misleading and that the real costs would be roughly €350 million higher. The mayor also pointed to the fact that the project needs to be approved by the Munich airport in which the city is a shareholder and will use its vote to block any approval. As reason for his opposition to the project the mayor cited environmental and noise concerns....

Noise concerns? The Maglev will be limited to 50db at night and 60db in the daytime. 50db is equivilent to someone talking to you at 1m distance, and 60db is equivilent to the sound in an averge department store. This is the quietest form of public transport around (of any value and speed).

This Mayor is mad. I hope this standing destroy's his career.

actually and unfortunately, it even helps his career.

When it comes to pragmatic decisisions about future projects, he can be sure, that he has a majority backing him, as long as hes against it......

The reason is, that most supporters of the new stuff keep quiet and the nay-sayers should loud enough for two or three...

Very good news.
it's a 300km/h?

>Since 2003
It is 2004 that Shanghai TR let a general passenger take it.
It is only trial driving for 2003 years. And it is 2006 that full-scale business driving began.

I heard that Shanghai Maglev has been a commercial failure. How will Munich Airport manage to make its maglev commercially successfull, if it is ever built ?

World's first maglev ran in the U.K. in 1884.
The, being next is Germany of 1989.
It is in use at an exhibition in Japan in 1985.

maglev running commerce is only Shanghai and Japanese Linimo now.

Let's just wait and see what Stoibers successor thinks about the project, it's Stoibers pet-project after all. And Hamburg - Berlin anyone, that didn't happen even though it had been approved.

That was really funny.
Despite my having forgotten most of my German, I can still tell when somebody can't figure out what they want to say in the language Thanks for that
