Rail Bridge At Phoenix

THE AIRPORT Authority at Phoenix Sky harbour has claimed a first by having a rail bridge built over an active aircraft taxiway.  The bridge for the airport’s new Sky Train system is 100ft (30m) tall and large enough for a Boeing 747 to pass underneath.
Stage one of the project will transport passengers between the ‘METRO’ light rail link, the east economy car parks and Sky Harbor’s busiest terminal – Terminal 4.  It is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.  Stage two, which will continue through the airport and to the offsite rental car centre, will be complete in 2020.
