Melaka State monorail system



After Kuala Lumpur, to date now Melaka will start to have an active monorail system. As the aim to reduce traffic congestion at Bandar Hilir Area, actually it focus more on enhancing tourist activities along the Melaka River that past through Heritage Area.

You can see it clearly at its based station in Taman Rempah / the River Cruise first ticketing counter – grey colored.

Spanning 1.6km, the 24-passenger monorail runs from Taman Rempah in Pengkalan Rama to Kampung Bunga Raya Pantai in the heart of the city.

In the midst of completion, the project delayed few month because of some land acquisition issues. So you can read the news here.

  1. Make sure the contractor is being paid for the work completion. We do not want another Taming Sari Tower and Eye on Malaysia case……Malu lah, sudah pasang, sudah pakai, tak mau bayar….

  2. Apparently, objective of this project is a big question mark. Public transport with 24 passengers train + single track (from photo) would not be effective at all and can’t consider as public transport with this capacity. Furthermore, since when, public transport and traffic congestion are the severe issue for Bandar Melaka? Tourist purpose, the scale of 18.4km in length and coverage (not fully on the tourist spot). Put a real question mark on this purpose. In fact, tourist would prefer transport such as water taxi, trishaw or tram as their transport to move around in the tourist area. Can’t recall many monorail project is built for the tourist purpose in this world. If yes, surely this will be a long term liability to the government.
    RM1.8b is a huge fund. Should be wisely spent on the project effectively and beneficial to citizen such as LRT/ MRT in KL, hospital, school……. RM1.8b, would able to improve Melaka streetscape, historical building and maintain the beauty of Melaka heritage for many years. RM1.8b for monorail………a wise investment?
