What are the Parameters considered before constructing a Sky walk or Moving Walkway viz Location, Distance covered, People Traffic, Cost etc ?

i.e. Depending on these input parameters, will help us in decision making for constructing a Moving Walkway or Sky walk at a desired location site.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
The sky walk is a constructed facility that will allow transportation of goods or people over a road etc.  The Horizontal auto walk would be something that could be put into the sky walk, i guess i am a little confused as to the request.  Are you looking for an explanation on both?
