SkyWay string transport is an energy and transportation communicator of elevated overpass type. It uses electric vehicles on steel wheels riding on specific string rails. The main design differences of this system from other types of railroads of trestle design are pre-stressed tension of the structure, the absence of a continuous solid roadbed, low materials intensity in construction and visual simplicity. The main advantages are economic efficiency, environmental friendliness, durability, reliability, safety and, consequently, high market competitiveness. SkyWay transport is developing in three main areas: high-speed intercity type (up to 500 km/h, and in future, up to 1250 km/h with the transition to a pre-vacuum tube) urban passenger type (up to 150 km/h) and freight type. It has no analogues in its field with the ability to meet the entire range of transportation needs. In future it can be integrated into a unified global energy, information and transportation network, which will allow our civilization to move over to a qualitatively new stage of development. The practical implementation of SkyWay transport systems is under way on-site EcoTechnoPark (on video) – the operating center for innovative developments, demonstration, testing, production, certification and subsequent improvement of SkyWay technology, creation of new generations of transport infrastructure complexes, as well as the development of agroecotechnologies and “Eco-house” technologies.
Transport should be a solution to problems, not their source. The SkyWay system provides
passenger and cargo transportation in a separate space – on the ‘second level’ above the ground.
The fact that SkyWay vehicles move above the ground on a specially designed rail-string overpass ensures a number of advantages: optimized aerodynamics, increased speed, unprecedented safety, rational use of land and resources, minimized environmental
damage caused by transport. In addition, the cost of construction and operation is significantly lower compared to the existing transport solutions.

SkyWay – the concept of an elevated transport system that has no analogues in the world.
Main elements of SkyWay transport and infrastructure complex:
• uncut pre-stressed rail-string overpass;
• rail automobiles on steel wheels characterized by highly aerodynamic design, equipped
with an anti-derailment system and a smart system of safety, control, power supply
SkyWay – speed, safety, comfort, affordability, cost effectiveness, sustainability.
SkyWay – increased social activities for people.
SkyWay – the basis for the information, power, transport and communications network of a new generation.
All types of SkyWay systems are distinguished by energy efficiency,
minimal adverse environmental impact and a high safety level of passenger
and cargo transportation
It fits harmoniously into the existing infrastructure of any megalopolis.
It solves transport problems of large cities by developing a network of high-rise buildings connected with each other by elevated (air) transportation.
Cargo SkyWay area of application:
• transportation of bulk cargo (ore, building materials, coal, etc.);
• transportation of liquid cargo (oil and oil products, natural drinking water, etc.);
• transportation of break-bulk cargo (rolled steel, wood, timber, etc.);
• transportation of containers and Europallets;
• transportation of special cargo(liquefied gases and cryogenic liquids,
radioactive and explosive substances, weapons, etc.).
