They talk about it

As massive urbanisation grows throughout the world, sustainable overhead transport solutions are redesigning the face of urban mobility. This project in Guayaquil is a perfect example: an overhead solution that passes easily and quickly over the Guayas river and the traffic jams in the city centre, and a sustainable decarbonised means of public transport.
