Up to an H-hour: the announcement of the host of the World Expo EXPO-2025, there are 4 months left, and the administration of Ekaterinburg already think how to show the city in terms of infrastructure projects. The authorities do not exclude the construction of the SkyWay transport system, which will partially replace metro, which is expensive and difficult in the construction. By 2025, the townspeople may see the string transport over Mayakovskiy Park.
Metro is time and money waste. Of course, it will be built, if we talk about the final term. But where it is appropriate, there will be SkyWay. In MyakovskIy Park, there will be such an unusual form of public transport. We went to Belarus, looked at the prototype, samples, we believe that in some areas, recreational and landscape ones, where you cannot build streets and roads, you can move in this way. Technologies are being improved, so why give up part of those that exist today and can be implemented, " said Alexey Belyshev.
In addition to SkyWay, the city is also planning to build a light rail transport line, and Expo City will be the end of the line. It should be noted that the implementation of all infrastructure and construction projects in Ekaterinburg at the moment largely depends on whether the city will receive the right to hold EXPO-2025. The city's competitors are Baku and Osaka, and the decision on who will host the exhibition will be taken at the general assembly of the International Exhibition Bureau in November 2018.
We remind you that the delegation from Eekaterinburg visited the SkyWay EcoTechnoPark in the spring of this year; during the business meeting, the guests made a tour of the pilot production workshops, appraised the new samples of the SkyWay rolling stock, and also witnessed the running tests.
