A 1.6 kilometer shuttle monorail along the Malacca River is nearing completion. The single track line connects Taman Rempah in Pengkalan Rama to Kampung Bunga Raya Pantai in the central part of the city. One 24-passenger, three car train will shuttle back and forth along the winding river. The line was developed by Kumpulan Melaka Berhad and Agibs Engineering and Construction Sdn Bhd. The monorail was developed as part of government efforts to enhance the Malacca River area of the city as a tourist attraction. The system is currently undergoing test runs, yet probably won't open until September. Before carrying passengers developers must complete a licensing and approval process.

But what about the future oh this monorail? I've found that costs of future extensions will be horrible (250 mln MYR per km comparing to 10 mln MYR/km for - also projected in Melaka - tram network; according to yesterday's data 1USD = 3,391 MYR)...

EDIT: OMG,just like in Rzeszow (look at performance statistics)

Malacca to spend RM2.35mil to buy 10 new buses
By MARTIN CARVALHO Friday July 23, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast

MALACCA: The state will spend some RM2.35mil to acquire 10 new 40-seater coaches for its Panorama bus service in a move to upgrade the public transportation system here.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said an order had been placed for the coaches from Scomi Engineering & Logistics Sdn Bhd, a company specialising in the building of buses and coaches.

“The move is part of a RM36mil transportation package plan which the state is seeking from the Federal Government.

“It is to upgrade the public transport system in the state in line with the National Key Result Area,” he told reporters this after visiting the Bumi Hijau programme in Bukit Katil.

He said the air-conditioned coaches would be equipped with the latest facilities to provide comfort for passengers.

The Malacca government, he added, had decided to operate the buses via its subsidiary PM Cultural & Tourism Sdn Bhd rather than leasing them from local bus company Town Bus Service Sdn Bhd.

Mohd Ali said the former Panorama bus service leasing deal resulted in losses of RM1.2mil over the last three years.

The state has submitted its application to the Federal Government for the RM36mil allocation following approval from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to improve the public transportation system here.

The money would be used as a revolving fund and a bank guarantee to enable 11 local bus operators to obtain the necessary bank loans to replace some 206 old buses operating within the city as well as the Alor Gajah and Jasin districts.

The funds would also be used to provide subsidies to bus operators to ensure services on ‘social’ routes that are usually not covered, owing to low profitability.

In a separate matter, Mohd Ali said the state was also keen to source electric buses from China for future use in the city.

“I saw some of the buses while in China recently and they are pollution-free as they do not emit any smoke,” he said.

Scomi eyes RM36m Malacca bus refurbishment project
Published: 2010/08/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0wAf6WYT7

SCOMI Engineering Bhd (7366) wants to refurbish the remaining 190 buses under a RM36 million budget allocated by the Malacca state government.

Scomi Engineering has been given the mandate by the state government to refurbish an initial 10 buses worth RM2.3 million.

The state government has set aside the RM36 million refurbishment fund for a total of 200 buses to help bus operators replace their fleet.

"If we do a good job, then we hope to take on more buses for the project," Scomi Engineering president Syahrunizam Samsudin said.
Syahrunizam spoke during a visit to the New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Bhd (NSTP) office in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

About 15 delegates from the group, led by its president and group chief executive officer Shah Hakim Zain, were given an insight into the operations of three newspapers in the NSTP stable - the New Straits Times, Berita Harian and Harian Metro - as well as other aspects of the group's operations such as advertising.

On hand to greet them were NST group managing editor Datuk Zainul Arifin Mohammed Isa, group editor Datuk Syed Nadzri Syed Harun and Berita Harian deputy group editor Mahfar Ali.

The delegation was later treated to a durian feast organised by Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority at the NSTP office building.

SAAG bags US$78m Mrails Tram contract

SAAG Consolidated (M) Bhd (9652)has bagged a US$78 million (RM239.46 million) job from Mrails Tram (Melaka) Sdn Bhd to build a 40km tram system in the state.

In its filing to the stock exchange yesterday, it said its overseas unit OGS Asiapac Ltd will undertake the tram project.

Work will start next month and is scheduled for completion by May 18 2012.

SAAG said the 40km tram system's main depot will be near the toll plaza at Ayer Keroh. It will connect the city through 32 stations passing through the UN heritage site.
Civil works and track laying would be carried out on existing roads.

The depot will allow for parking space for buses and cars to facilitate "Park and Ride".

SAAG said the specifications of the system include a 1,000mm standard gauge track, medium speed of up to 60kmh, involving about 20 double-car Trams to cater to 120 passengers each way.

The tram cars are to be fuelled using NGV/Euro IV fuel to avoid excessive pollution and will be supplied by CNR Tangshan Railway Vehicle Corp Ltd, the largest manufacturer of rails and rapid transit vehicles in China.

Mrails Tram (Melaka) has signed a principal agreement with the Chief Minister of Malacca (Inc) in March 2010, which accords a 25-year concession to operate the tram way.

What's the current status of the monorail? The last I knew it had been mothballed following problems. Is it officially "dead"?

Also, I remember reading somewhere (a few years ago now) that KTM was hoping to rebuild the Malacca-Tampin branch line and get passenger service into Malacca city. Is this still on the cards? Melaka Sentral doesn't seem to have any specific provision for rail.
