Dubai Is Getting Its Own 'SkyWay' With 21 Stations That Will Loop Through Skyscrapers
In a series of tweets that came via the ruler of Dubai's Twitter account on Tuesday, this has to be up there (literally!) with the most exciting.
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai approved a SkyWay project, a 15-Kilometer urban transit system which will transport passengers along Dubai's skyscrapers via 21 stations.
It looks like something like a gondola or a ski lift but this time it will be swerving through Dubai's metropolis.... how cool is this?
