Construction Gallery - São Paulo, Brazil (Line 15).
March 2013 photos by Luke Starkenburg
On March 30, 2013, Luke walked 10.7 kilometers along the alignment of Line 15 and photographed the construction progress. This is Vila Prudente Station at the western end of the new monorail.
Luke noticed a new shape for some monorail beams by stations on the route.
Another look at Vila Prudente Station and the interestingly-shaped beam.
Track between Vila Prudente and Oratorio includes a test segment for the emergency walkway.
Unimpeded traffic along the construction of the monorail route.

Thanks for the images Luke, we appreciate you sharing your long walk adventure with us!
