MELAKA, Nov 20 (Bernama) -- The Melaka government is prepared to introduce the monorail to ease traffic congestion in the historical city if there is an investor keen to participate in the project, the State Assembly was told Tuesday.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the monorail would cover 12 kilometres from Ayer Keroh through Jalan Ong Kim Wee, Jalan Pantai, Melaka Raya, Ujong Pasir, Simpang Empat, Semabok to Melaka Sentral.

"It can be implemented at any time if an investor is interested in the project," he said when replying to a question from Datuk Chong Tam On (BN-Bemban).

Mohd Ali said a local company was conducting a study on the monorail.

He also said that the state government has sent a proposal to the federal government to extend the railway commuter service from Seremban to Melaka city or from Tampin to Melaka city.

    Monorail, best gak, tak susah nak cari parking.

    Construction should be careful around the heritage areas.

    I was wondering whether you would be interested in exchanging links with a relevant blog of mine.

    The one is a PR2 blog.

    I believe that a link exchange can do our blogs some good.

    Thanks for your consideration.
