PHOENIX SKY TRAIN STAGE 1A

Phoenix, Arizona

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

24-hour electric train extension initiated to reduce traffic congestion, pollution and roadway damage caused by the heavy inter-terminal shuttle buses

3,600 l.f. extension from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3

HIGHLIGHTS

Horizontal & vertical design of Stage 1A train running surface & guidebeam installations

Due to the computer control aspects of the system, exact tolerances were imminent during design and construction layout to ensure the smooth ride quality

Horizontal, vertical and 3D vehicle clearance envelope evaluations were critical in meeting the correct ride requirements for the system

Our team developed a dynamic design tool to produce extensive tables required for guidebeam manufacturing, allowing minor profile modifications to be quickly updated on the plans and guidebeam tables
