LINXS Constructors has packed the construction of the structure of the guide tracks of the train at the International Airport in Los Angeles (LAX) Automated People Mover in the USA.
LINXS Constructors, a joint venture (JV) of Fluor, Balfour Beatty, Dragados USA and Flatiron, has built the trail for the $ 4.9 billion Los Angeles World Airports mega infrastructure project, which is expected to be completed in 2023.
Built under the LAX Coastal Access Modernization Program, Automated People Mover is a 2.25-mile electric train system with six stations.
Three stations, located in the terminal area, offer connections to the terminals via elevated footpaths.
Three other stations, located outside the central terminal area, are connected to new off-site car parks, regional light transport and a car rental facility.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garsetti said: “Automated movement of people will be much more than just another way to get to LAX. This is the part of the puzzle that will put an end to the traffic jams that have plagued our airport for decades. ”
In November 2019, LINXS began construction of the trail with the installation of the first underground support columns.
It completed the first pouring of a concrete column in January 2020, as well as the first pouring of the guide segment in September of that year.
Since 2019, LINXS has poured a total of 69,700 cubic yards of concrete to complete the structure of the guides.
Thomas Nilsson, president of Fluor’s infrastructure business, said: “The Automated People Mover project is an important investment in Los Angeles’ infrastructure as the city prepares to host the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This January, Fluor, along with its partner in JV Walsh Construction, began reconstruction of a section of the Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) North Main Line Red and Purple Line.
