Low Cost Sustainable Transportation System

Elevated Corridor


The Low Cost Sustainable Transport System (LCSTS) is designed to provide a rail solution to public transportation for cities and other locations where transport planning has not been cost effective. It is designed in a way that allows for simple, modular construction of a comparative small basic structure that meets all current standards, while taking advantage of new and sustainable technologies.

The Elevated Corridor is a rail transportation system, which lowers capital and maintenance costs. The superstructure is entirely compatible with existing rail construction and can be used as a simple and effective way of renewing or replacing current life expired or damaged infrastructure without compromising track quality. The Elevated Corridor also solves issues of transition from traditional ballasted track onto elevated structures.
