Melaka Aerorail is a proposed monorail line to be constructed in Malacca City. It will be constructed in two phases, 9.5 km for the first one with another at 8.7 km. The cost of construction is expected to be around RM1.8 Billion. If it is successful, it will be the first aerorail network in Malaysia and Asia. The project, however, has been postponed indefinitely.
The first phase costs around RM586 million, involving a distance of 9.5 km. It includes the construction of 10 transit stations starting from the Ayer Keroh Toll Plaza, Zoo Melaka, Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC), Malacca Historic City Council Square (MBMB), Melaka Mall, Hospital Melaka, Melaka Sentral Station, Hang Tuah Mall, Big Clock Tower (Building Stadthuys) and crown Medical Centre (Heroes' Square) and end at Dataran Pahlawan in Bandar Hilir.
The project also involves a stopover (hotel) in each station, producing 2,500 rooms for accommodation. These hotels will be managed by the Leisure Group Hotels & Resorts Sdn Bhd. It is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012.
The project was supposed to commence in 2010.
The second phase costs around RM807 million, involving a distance of 8.7 kilometers. The project, if successful, will be extended to Alor Gajah and Jasin district.
