Despite sustained opposition from residents, civic associations and elected officials in the project’s path, and after more than a year of delays, the federal government is nearing completion of its review that could lead to construction. The project could begin operating as early as 2030, according to recent news accounts.
Dates for April 2021 are listed on the project website: https://bwmaglev.info/index.php/virtual-public-hearings
