In the final interview Sergey Grishin and Anatoly Yunitskiy discussed key points of SkyWay technologies relating to the construction rate of SkyWay routes, specifics of assembling track structures, maintenance personnel and prospects of the SkyWay transport system.
Sergey Grishin asked for what period it is possible to build a SkyWay route of Federal significance St. Petersburg – Moscow − Sochi of 3,000 km distance. On the example of this strategically important project the General designer explained, what work would have to be done to ensure that the construction phase took not more than two years. "A year or a year and a half will be needed for project designing. <...> At the same time preparation for the construction will be done, because we should have to place orders for the production of strings, metal structures, manufacture of unibuses. New plants should be built. Later they will also supply other routes. And after that, it will be possible to build a route of 3,000 km length within a year or two".
