an innovative concepts of a very low cost RAILBUS elevated tracks [login to view URL] provide basic information and sketches that explain clearly their design concept which include the following
Appearance of track
Cost (In USD per 1 Kilometer)
Span between columns 20 ~ 30 meter
Track net height 5 meter
The width of the 2 way track is 6.5 meters
Materials can be concrete, steel, combination, or any other proposed materials
The vehicle weight (fully populated) is 8 tons and the idea of light weight vehicles unlike the trams or metro system is to minimize the construction cost of the elevated tracks.
There is a light weight solar panels between the tracks which will not make big impact for the overall track weight.
