Tenerife Transrapid Website


We would encourage all of you to head over to the Tenerife (Spain) Transrapid website.  

About the meaning and purpose of this page
This website is created and funded by residents of the island of Tenerife, supporting the idea that instead of building an expensive and environmentally destructive railway A Transrapid connection. We are not a club or association, regardless of politics and industry, and represent only the freedom of free citizens. The site is still under construction and will also appear in Spanish, a comment function is planned.
Progress must be an end in itself, but he can not be rejected for ideological reasons, a flat rate, as it has become in many circles of fashion. The progress has to get his chance where it makes sense really, and this is the Transrapid our opinion, for the island of Tenerife. The traffic situation with one of the highest car densities in the world (~ 800 cars per 1,000 inhabitants) is unacceptable and cries for a solution, and is certainly not on a massive land use by a monstrous rail project with 40 km (!) Tunnels in volcanic rock, which, according testimony of construction experts would be almost impossible to finance anyway.
May the reason prevail this time!
