Mitsubishi ramps up as guideway deck nears completion

(November 17, 2016) An eighth of an inch. That’s the critical measure the Mitsubishi team is working with as it constructs Tampa International Airport’s 1.4-mile people mover system. Any slight deviation in plinths beyond that amount means the work needs to be fixed – or completely redone.
