An escalator is a moving staircase made up of a circling belt of steps that transports people between floors in a public building. It comprises a motor-driven chain of individual, linked steps that move up and down on tracks while keeping the step treads horizontal.

According to SkyQuest, on average, European countries spend 5% of G.D.P. on infrastructure, while China, the fastest-growing economy, spends roughly 8%. Various governments emphasize building high-quality infrastructure to drive global investments and create an employment pool.
