Building Guideways: Behind the scenes with HI Now
Take a look behind the scenes at our casting yard in Campbell Industrial Park with HI Now! You can see how each segment of the guideway is cast and cured before it finds its place in the larger structure. Project Manager Dan Howell explains:
“When we cast them out in the yard, we have to cast the joint where the two come together so they all line up perfectly the same,” Howell says each segment is about 55-60 tons, while the gantry itself weights 550 tons. People have been wondering whether these guideways would support the train, but the trains only weigh about 250 tons.
