    Monorail journey for Mumbaikars is not far away, as the first four-car train set of the Mumbai Monorail Project was successfully tested between Wadala and Bhakti Park on February 18,
    2012.
    Mumbai Monorail on its trail run from Wadala to Bhakti Park on February 18, 2012.

    The testing was done by ScomiIndia, the development agency which bagged the contract to develop India’s first 19.54 km Monorail system in Mumbai in partnership with Larsen & Turbro, the engineering consulting firm.
    The consortium bagged the $ 541 million contract from Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) contract in November 2008 and in January 2010, Scomi announced the completion and successful 108-meter trail run of the first monorail car.

    Speaking to VimanaVarta.com, Kanesan Veluppillai, Scomi – International President said,
    “The full fledge operations will be started by June 2012 and it will be the quietest mass transit system in the city.”
    The system are said to be ideal for urban congested corridors like Mumbai, due to its maneuverability and nimbleness to navigate tight turns and narrow corridors and it can be constructed avoiding the needs to dismantle existing structures and buildings.
    The system is primarily meant to be a feeder mode of transport to supplement the mass transport systems and will be well connected with the existing suburban rail and the upcoming metro rail in the city, he added.
    It is a clean means of public transport as it moves on rubber tyres on concrete beams creating less noise and vibration during operation and is powered by electric motors which are silent, efficient and clean and is estimated to save approximately 200 tonnes of CO2 a day.
    Experts believe that Monorail can de-congest the traffic in the area, improve connectivity and reduce travel time for commuters. The relatively small and lightweight structures of a monorail system can be constructed very quickly shortening implementation time.
    It offers increased cost savings, along the whole process of its implementation, once the monorail is already up and running, it is also often cheaper and more efficient than other modes of transportation.

    Actually I was wondering can this monorail have an intersection like that of conventional rails, in the first picture at post #1 it seems some kind of movable beam link at the left side of the picture, the switch over mechanism might be in the testing in that picture, I feel the switching system of conventional rails is safer then a monorail concept and you also miss the emergency side walk arrangement as seen in conventional metro rails, in an event of a breakdown the passengers will have to move out in the monorail which has no side protection or just wait till help arrives.

    How about this concept?

    This is how a monorail switching intersection looks.

    Another interesting read is the Transrapid system.

    mono rails usually change tracks with the help moveble tracks,
    1. Monorail came and stops at that moving section.
    2. Then that section of track is moved with the monorail to the new track.
    3. Monorail now move to new track.
    As you can see in payeng's post.
    And this image.

    Nope. Not really.

    The only solution would be building JJ Flyover alikes over congested roads.

    looks like it can be constructed faster and cheaper then metro rail. Hope we should get this in Delhi, now a days i am sick of all the crowd in metro rail.

    दिल्ली के दूसरे हिस्सों में भी चल सकती है मोनो रेल
    Updated on: Wed, 25 Jan 2012
    07:53 PM (IST)
    नई दिल्ली, राज्य ब्यूरो : मेट्रो के
    बाद दिल्ली में मोनो रेल भी रफ्तार
    पकड़ सकती है। दिल्ली सरकार
    द्वारा इस
    उड़नपरी को पूर्वी दिल्ली में
    हरी झंडी दिखाए जाने के बाद शहर
    के अन्य हिस्सों में भी इसके पहुंचने
    की संभावनाएं प्रबल हो गई हैं।
    दिल्ली की मुख्यमंत्री शीला दीक्षित
    की अगुआई में सरकार की एक उच्चस्तरीय बैठक में पूर्वी दिल्ली के
    शास्त्री पार्क से त्रिलोकपुरी के
    बीच करीब 11 किलोमीटर लंबी मोनो रेल लाइन बिछाने की मंजूरी दे दी गई। दिल्ली सरकार
    के आधिकारिक सूत्रों का कहना है
    कि बाकी प्रस्तावित
    लाइनों को भी सरकार ने खारिज नहीं किया है। उन्होंने कहा कि हकीकत यह है, कि पूर्वी दिल्ली से शुरुआत की गई है
    और आने वाले दिनों में अन्य लाइनों पर भी विचार कया जाएगा।
    विदित हो कि दिल्ली सरकार ने अपने विजन-2021 में शहर में मोनो रेल
    की 47.8 किलोमीटर लंबी तीन लाइनें बिछाने का प्रस्ताव किया था। इनमें से पहली लाइन रोहिणी सेक्टर-21 से लाल किले के बीच (28.5 किमी), दूसरी लाइन
    कल्याणपुरी से पुल मिठाई (15.5
    किमी) तथा तीसरी लाइन गुलाबी बाग से
    दिल्ली विश्वविद्यालय तक (3.8 किमी) बिछाई जानी थी।
    दिल्ली सरकार ने इनमें से दूसरी लाइन को छोटा करते हुए इसे
    शास्त्री पार्क से त्रिलोकपुरी के
    बीच बिछाने पर सहमति जताई है।
    इस संबंध में सरकार के
    अधिकारियों का कहना है कि भविष्य में दिल्ली की सार्वजनिक परिवहन प्रणाली मेट्रो ही होगी। ऐसे में चाहे मोनो रेल हो अथवा बसें हों, इन्हें मेट्रो की सहायक सेवा के तौर पर काम करना है। इसीलिए मोनो रेल
    की लाइनों को मेट्रो लाइनों से जोड़ा जा रहा है। उन्होंने कहा कि पूर्वी दिल्ली की प्रस्तावित लाइन एक ओर शास्त्री पार्क में दिलशाद गार्डन-रिठाला लाइन से जुड़ेगी तो दूसरी ओर त्रिलोकपुरी में
    मुकुंदपुर-यमुना विहार लाइन से।
    रोहिणी से दिल्ली गेट आने वाली प्रस्तावित लाइन वजीरपुर, शक्ति नगर, आनंद पर्वत और अजमेरी गेट होती हुई जाएगी। अब
    देखना यह होगा कि मेट्रो की विभिन्न लाइनों से इसका टकराव न हो पाए।
    इसी प्रकार गुलाबी बाग से दिल्ली विश्वविद्यालय को जाने वाली लाइन शक्ति नगर-कमला नगर होती हुई बिछाई जानी है। इस लाइन के मामले में भी मेट्रो लाइन की बात ध्यान में रखनी होगी।
    आधिकारिक सूत्रों ने
    बताया कि सरकार इन लाइनों पर विचार करेगी। नए सिरे से इनकी फिजिबिलिटी रिपोर्ट तैयार
    कराई जाएगी। इसके अलावा अन्य
    नई लाइनों पर भी विचार किया जा सकता है।

    Bangalore is also getting its monorail as a feeder for metro. The plan is 60kms of it in phase 1.

    Thats what similar is happening in here Delhi also.
    The Delhi monorail is suppose to feed the DMRC and cover a peripheral NCR region.
