The Putrajaya Monorail is an incomplete monorail system in Putrajaya. Putrajaya was originally to have a light rail system, and construction of tunnels for said system was ongoing, when plans were changed, and a monorail plan was selected. It calls for two sublines; Line 1, which is 12 km monorail route with 17 stations and Line 2, which is 6 km monorail route with 6 stations.[3][4]

Project Status[edit]

Construction was halted in 2004, and will probably resume as the city becomes more populated.[5] The monorail will include the Monorail Suspension Bridge, currently incomplete,[6] and the Putra Bridge.[7] The monorail line would allow transfers to KLIA Transit, connecting to Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur International Airport, at Putrajaya/Cyberjaya ERL station. The project originally cost RM400 million.[8]

Monorail Project Revival[edit]

MMC Corporation Berhad (MMC) has submitted a proposal to the Economic Council (EC) to revive the stalled monorail project since 2004 due to due to budget constraints. Hence, Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will now be conducting a feasibility study for monorail and tram services for both Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.[9]

Tram Proposal[edit]

However, the Federal Territories Ministry, its minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor hopes to build and get tram infrastructure going within the next three years. Now under the jurisdiction of the Economic Council, the minister sees the development of the tram system as an alternative solution to abandoned monorail projects and recommends due to it cheaper to build.
