Skytunnels: A revolutionary concept to ease traffic woes

This patented infrastructure solution can also support economies in crisis

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently announced that 2020 will see the global economy shrink by 3 per cent due to the coronavirus, the worst decline since 1929’s Great Depression. Therefore, countries big and small are seeking innovative solutions to hop back on the growth trajectory. As was the case 90 years ago, a ray of hope for a quick economic recovery can be seen through infrastructure projects – including a Ukrainian inventor Arkady Kornatsky’s unique technology Skytunnels.

What is Skytunnels?

Patented in the US, Canada and China, Arkady Kornatsky’s Skytunnels system can be built atop a country’s existing wide highways without impeding traffic along the existing road beneath. Crucially, construction over the road does not lead to an increase in traffic congestion or transport collapse, as opposed to the usual methods of road construction, while upper floors of Skytunnels can be built simultaneously in many directions.

Thanks to the unique prefabricated Mobile Self-Propelled Tunnel (MSPT), the new multi-lane and multi-functional road infrastructure can be built at a much faster pace than conventional construction methods allow. “The speed of creating Skytunnels infrastructure is ensured by the fact that the construction of Skytunnels over existing wide highways can be carried out at any time of the year and at any time of the day by the method of high-speed installation of ready-to-use structures manufactured industrially at construction enterprises,” explains Kornatsky, a Ukrainian lawyer who devised the concept after spending years stuck in the heavy traffic congestions.
