MELAKA: The only tourist
monorail in the country that
circles Sungai Melaka here
will resume operations in
a month’s time after lying idle for four years.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris
Haron said the state
government was making
efforts to revive operations.
“The tourist monorail is a
project that we cannot afford to
 ignore as a lot of money has been spent on it.
“The service will resume once
engineers checking on the monorail give us the green light,” he said.
Soon after the RM15.9mil
monorail service began on
 Oct 20, 2010, it stalled about 100m from its main Hang Jebat station with
about 20 passengers on
board.
A year later, 18 tourists
from Hong Kong, their tour
leader and guide were also
 left stranded 300m from
the Hang Jebat station.
This led to Land Public
Transport Commission’s
move to discontinue the
service.
The China-made monorail line,
spanning 1.6km from Taman
Rempah in Pengkalan
Rama to Kampung Bunga
Raya Pantai along the
Melaka River, was part of
the state’s aim to draw
 more tourists.
The project is a joint venture between Melaka Historic City Council, state subsidiary Kumpulan Melaka Bhd and Agibs Engineering and Construction Sdn Bhd.
