What is Sky Way

Sky Way is a highly competitive alternative and cost-effective transport system incorporating revolutionary technology delivering faster, safer, more sustainable and smoother rail services. 

The game-changer for Australia is that a Sky Way transport system can be built for much less than conventional heavy rail systems and light rail infrastructure.

Sky Way’s revolutionary technology, coupled with its low relative net construction/ operating costs, enhanced safety features and minimal land use impacts promises to redefine the future of rail networks in Australia.

How Sky Way works

 

Sky Way operates on overhead rails fixed to concrete or steel supports. The overhead rails are reinforced with high-tension steel wires or built as elevated truss structures. The rails are placed at optimal height between 3 to 100 metres above the ground, with supports at 50 to 100 metre intervals.

Sky Way’s highly aerodynamic rolling stock is fully automated and offers the most advanced technology in terms of rail safety and propulsion systems. In passenger mode vehicles can be designed to seat between eight and 100 people.

In freight mode Sky Way delivers up to 50 million tonnes per year over a distance of up to 10,000 kms.

Australia’s first Sky Way system

Sky Way Transport Australia Pty Ltd has commenced planning for Australia’s first Sky Way project for Flinders University’s Bedford Campus providing connectivity between an existing student car parking facility near Flinders Medical Centre and its campus hub.

Once built the half a kilometre system will carry up to 900,000 students a year seven days a week.  The solution will integrate the university’s land holdings in the area, which will be redeveloped further into residential education and business precincts.

History of the technology

 

Sky Way has been developed over 30 years and the technology is now in its fourth generation. Sky Way’s detailed engineering designs have been subject to bench testing, test sites and cost planning exercises.

A prototype project, showcasing the technology, is currently being built in Eastern Europe and is due for completion in 2017.
