    I still dont understand how Monorail can be superior to Metro except perhaps the lower cost:sad:

    This is one issue i dont agree with JJ:sad:

    It isn't. Jayalalitha is playing politics. DMK went for the Metro Rail, and ADMK wants to be different. Same case with that library, and the new secretariat as well.

    Library and secratariat are differant case. The new secratariat itself was a hog wash. Despite having spent about twice the allocated money(not to mention that the contract was given to the DMK benami company) only 8 out of the 34 departments functioned from the new" Secretariat" . The fact is that both the Old and the New one were functioning when she moved back the Secretariat back to original place. It was DMK which was playing politics.

    Library is being turned into a hospital a move which no one can refute as bad, considering the health needs of the City . Also the library will the closer to the Connemara library and National book libraries , it is only wise to have this near them. So i dint have any problem with either of these. Only problem i have is the Monorail.

    Monorail is inferior to Metro, the only purpose it can serve is as feeder routes for Metro, good for low density areas, as it is cheaper to operate, but this can be done by buses too, use the existing road infrastructure/ better them, will take less investments as compared to creating separate infrastructure of mono rails
