The exhibition "Transport of Russia"

The project design organization of SkyWay took part in the tenth jubilee exhibition "Transport of Russia" that worked in Moscow from November 30 to December 2, 2016. It was one of the events held in the framework of "Transport week" that is an annual event organized by the Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation highlighting the major trends in the market of transport services.

Because of the fact that the industrial samples of the rolling stock are undergoing tests at EcoTechnoPark, the SkyWay display stand presents models of suspended and mounted string transport at 1:10 scale.
