20 May 2022

No sooner had we noticed that "as the main elements of both string transport test centres are ready, at the present stage of its development the focus of the attention has obviously moved from construction details to potential customers, i. e. visitors" than news of the construction progress in Sharjah has arrived!

But first we would like to remind you that 2021 was remarkable for:

- The commencement of pilot operation of Test Track 1 with a 400 m long flexible string rail overpass (spans of 100 and 200 m) of the suspended string transport and infrastructure complex.

Now the construction of two more 2.4 km long test tracks is underway at the string transport test and certification centre in Sharjah.

- completed installation of 46 intermediate supports (spacing of 48 m);
