Silly thing to do on an auto system, but it does help to explain why going from 2 to 4 cars may have an adverse effect on possible demand. Simple perception and I emphasise the word perception of a longer wait does turn people off, though really 6 minutes wait isn't so bad. In fact pretty good in many places.

I can't wait (although I would have loved if they had included the extension more to the east of Ala Moana in the original plan). Now that all these lawsuits have been won I can only hope it arrives on time

It would be great if they could extend it out to Hanauma Bay though Waikiki. The bus is always packed.

Guideway construction begins


HART has begun installing the guideway for the rail system, placing the 50-ton segments on top of the columns in West Oahu.

Each span-the portion of the guideway between one column and the next- is made up of approximately 12 segments. The segments are produced at the 35-acre casting yard in Kalaeloa. No two segments are identical. Each segment must be configured specifically for the precise angle and alignment where it will be placed. It will take about 5,200 segments to for the first 10-miles of the alignment.

HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas, HART Board Chairman Ivan Lui-Kwan and HART Project Oversight Committee Chairman Damien Kim, Mayor Kirk Caldwell and other state and city elected leaders recently visited the construction site where the work was taking place.

Workers will be installing spans in both directions, with work beginning near Kualakai Parkway, also known as North-South Road. Beginning this summer, column construction will proceed down Farrington Highway through Waipahu. The guideway will cross over Ft. Weaver Road in the near future, with span placement following column installation down the median of the roadway.

I have no idea if this will make it through the House intact:

Senate committee approves $250M for Honolulu rail project

Bill Cresenzo, Reporter- Pacific Business News
Jun 6, 2014, 2:49pm HST


The U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations has approved $250 million for Honolulu's $5.16 billion rail project, Sen. Brian Schatz's office said Friday.

The $250 million was previously announced in March, when the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation said that President Barack Obama had included it in his budget.

HART said the $250 million ensures that Honolulu would get a total of $1.55 billion in federal money for the project.

Workers raise 100th column for Honolulu's elevated-rail system

Workers with Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. installed the 100th column Thursday on Honolulu's $5.16 billion rail project, the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation said. "The fact that we’ve gone from 16 completed columns to 100 in less than nine months shows tremendous progress for rail,” Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said in a statement.
The 100th column, which went up along Kualakai Parkway in East Kapolei, is one of 220 columns that HART expects to have up by the end of the year that will represent the first 10 miles of the 20-mile route, HART said.
Workers are also building the rail's maintenance and operations center and are casting guideway segments in Kalaeloa.
Earlier this month, workers installed the first guideway, which bridges the columns.
And last month, HART issued an RFP for contracts to build rail stations in West Oahu. The contracts, which have an estimated value of up to $170 million, are the first of about $1 billion in contracts that HART plans to award this year.

Construction photos of Honolulu rail guideway spans

As of July 5, 2014, six completed guideway spans, and two soon to be completed. From my flickr account album Honolulu Rail-June/July 2014.

What about plans to extend Honolulu Rail to UH campus? Will they actually build this sector after the first ones?

Those guideway spans are massive. They should've gone with something much more sleek/slim, can't imagine that monstrosity going through the streets of Downtown Honolulu.

This is from mid-July, but here is the design render for the new HART station at Honolulu International Airport:

Edit: it (again) appears I am not allowed to post images for whatever reason, so just click the link I provided for them.

The problem was not you, but some clutter on the URL name (erase whatever is after and including * until the . and it will be fine), blame the website that broadcast it.

The segment of the Honolulu Rail Transit Line west of Aloha Stadium to East Kapolei is being constructed first rather than the segment from Aloha Stadium to Ala Moana Center because the west segment will have a baseyard for the line's trains and a planning decision by the city to delay major impacts associated with construction in Honolulu's urban centre to later phases.

So, I was thinking:

If the LRT takes off and is a success, they obviously have plans to expand within the city. What about covering the entire island?

As I see it, the coastal highways and one following the H2 and the H3 could benefit the island as a whole.

I realize this would be 10-20 years away.
