Public Can Give Views on Melaka Tram Project

MELAKA, 24 DECEMBER, 2011: Members of the public will be able to give their views on the proposed Melaka Tram service when an exhibition on the project is held soon, Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said.

He said the exhibition would display the model and method used for the proposed tram project.

"I have asked the relevant parties to expedite holding the exhibition," he said when met by Bernama here today.

He said the Melaka Tram project would be the first tram service to use natural gas (NGV).

"This tram is different from monorail because it functions as a public transport to avoid traffic congestion in Melaka," he added.

The Melaka Tram project, costing RM272 million, would be built by Syarikat Mrails International Sdn Bhd with the cooperation of the Chief Minister Incorporated.
