Dear fellow-thinkers, from our publications you know well enough about the linear city model with five various types of string tracks available at the test and certification centre of the project in Sharjah. Representatives from Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti, Romania, the Czech Republic, and many other guests have already familiarized themselves with it. Now we briefly retell you the presentation by the developer’s Middle East branch of the concept of an eco-friendly city with developed public transportation, green energy, and economy.
The linear city represents pedestrian clusters linked to each other through the networks of transport, energy, and other engineering and communication channels. A linear city cluster is a multifunctional modular settlement located near key infrastructure points of a country or large city. The connection between clusters is provided by urban rail electric vehicles on steel wheels travelling at the speed of up to 150 km/h. Each such cluster can host up to 5 thousand people for comfortable well-being. Its mainstay is pedestrian areas with low-rise comfortable residential buildings with ubiquitous greening of rooftops and urban districts, as well as with the use of renewable energy sources.
The distinguishing element of each cluster is a multifunctional dominant building with a built-in rooftop station for the string transport system running in spans up to 1.5 km long to the next dominant in the neighbouring cluster. Apartments, hotels and shops, restaurants and cafes, business centres and stations, museums and theatres, and sports and entertainment venues will be placed in the cluster building. Cluster size is 1–1.5 km (area 1–2 sq.km), which is optimal for the pedestrian accessibility to infrastructure and string transport stations, which excludes the need for daily use of a personal car and traditional public urban transport means (bus, tram, trolleybus, taxi, monorail, cable car, underground and overground metro, etc.).
In the future, the construction of a single linear type of cluster will be able to serve as a pilot project for the creation of a linear city with a length of tens, hundreds, and even thousands of kilometres consisting of a series of clusters interconnected by intercity string transport lines with 500 km/h high-speed rolling stock.
