The erection of buildings above or along railway yards and tracks is an economic proposition. They may take the form of structures which link up with other forms of transport (bus stations, air terminals, parking garages or postal centers); or public or commercial administration offices, banks, department stores and other commercial buildings, hotels, exhibition centers or dwellings. The air space above and adjacent to both state-owned and private railway systems is in fact the largest and generally the only integrated free space in city centers. Such level areas occupied by dreary stretches of track block not only cross-communication, but urban renewal. Throughout the world many structures are being put up over railways.
