A Vietnamese Internet resource Giáo Dục Phối Đại has published an article about the development of our project in the UAE, based on the materials of a recent publication by CNN. Since you are already well aware of it, we will confine ourselves to a brief retelling of the information that Vietnamese journalists have selected.
Traffic congestion is a problem faced by many cities around the world. Some solutions include electric scooters as a means of transportation, some include artificial intelligence-enabled traffic lights, and the string transport developer offers its own unique solution and is already testing a new 400-metre track in Sharjah, UAE.
Outside, the rolling stock is glossy white, while the interior resembles that of a first-class aircraft. The author of the publication also notes decorative lighting, music, and floor-to-ceiling windows of a unicar in a tropical design, equipped with 2 soft armchairs and 2 folding seats.
Such an urban transport system will be able to serve up to 10,000 passengers per hour at a speed of 150 km/h, although it cannot be reached on the existing track section for safety reasons. The company says its goal is to free up roads and ground space that can be used for vegetation, walkways, and public recreational areas.
Important advantages of string transport are also: reduced carbon emissions and construction costs – 1 km of metro can come up to $ 150 million, while the same section of an innovative transport and infrastructure complex will be only about $ 10 million.
Any story ends with a description of development plans: at the end of the year, the company is going to build a 2.4 km line in Sharjah, which will transport passengers at higher speeds and demonstrate how to combine passenger and freight traffic.
At the testing stage, the company received a preliminary permission to build a route to the coastal city of Khor Fakkan in the east of the UAE. Although the article provides the opinion that the presented complex is more suitable for countries with underdeveloped public transport and a growing need for solutions for mobility, according to the developer's representative, requests have already been received from countries such as the United States and Canada. The company hopes to complete its first commercial deal later this year in Sharjah. This means that the first project can be commissioned by 2024.
