In western India, an apparently successful attempt has been made to solve the feederline problem by constructing a nine-mile Guideways track carrying penumatic-tired passenger and goods vehicles. The track consists of a continuous lime-concrete slab, 3 ft. wide and 6 in. to 9 in. deep, surfaced with cement plaster and having a central guide rail to prevent vehicles leaving the track. Great economy is claimed for Guideways, both in prime cost and maintenance. One man patrols a four-mile length, sweeping the track clear of sand and stones.
