For more than 20 years of roaming every nook and cranny of the bustling Sydney metropolis, Sydney Monorail is bidding farewell. The well-known monorail will be running its course for the last time before it ceases operation at the end of June this year.
Sydney Monorail had its first operations in 1988, and since then it has brought numerous Sydneysiders and tourists around its eight-station loop. It has become one of Sydney’s main attractions, and means of going around the city. Its network has connected various points of interests to most visitors of the Sydney CBD, from the illustrious Darling Harbour to the top and up-market shopping centres and hotels, and to various cultural as well as entertainment centres that dot the multicultural city of Sydney. Thorough its circuit loop, it has been a silent witness of countless smiles of people who have embarked on an exciting and enjoyable journey around Sydney – bringing families, groups of friends and even wanderers to highly amusing museums, parks and wildlife and natural sanctuaries.
Now that its departure will end one of the most treasured attractions of Sydney, we are hoping that a new era of a better and more efficient transport system will be rolled out into the metropolis. A system that will not just be another form of ‘tourist magnet’, but a system that can either be relevant and beneficial to the landscape of the urban jungle of Sydney, and its reputation of being a prime mega-city of the 21st century.
