The gaps in the track have been completed and the badly-placed rails have been removed and replaced.

Most importantly, the monorail train has arrived:

With only 3 carriages, we wonder how it is supposed to carry the planned 80 passengers.

TRANSIT Says:

It’s cute…but it is definitely not the monorail that we thought it would be, based on the render:

We have to wonder what the ADUN and people of Malacca will think of the monorail that they actually got as compared to the monorail that was proposed.
