Construction Gallery - São Paulo, Brazil (Line 15).

The first section of S
ão Paulo's Line 15 is being built at a fast pace.

As we drive down the construction alignment, we see these cantilever supports. Pylons for the project are arguably among the best-looking monorail supports in the world.

The first beams have been lifted into place, and we have been told the track fabrication yard is state of the art.
This segment features columns 15 meters high to be above the tree line. The result will be a gorgeous rail alignment with a fantastic view for passengers.

Construction of two stations is well under way.

Pylons going up, minimal space taken, street traffic continues.
