How about this going down King will aha
I still don't get why this thing keeps popping up when it fails even the slightest bit of practical analysis. It must just be the click-bait sites keeping it alive.

Was this proposed for anywhere other than Flinders Uni? The Messenger article talks about The Parade and Unley Road. Is the Flinders proposal simply the test mentioned in the article?

Why am I not surprised that a News Corp article on it has featured a YouTube clip of the Simpsons monorail...
this is what passes for quality mainstream journalism in this country now.

Anyway here's the pictures...seems to have been watered down from the concept images on the first page?
They've even cheapened up on the 'station'..

That render is officially wet dream level design. You can't have trees there during construction let alone while the thing is running. There's no proven technology behind this.

Also, these are suspended cabins, the Flinders proposal was for cars running on top of tracks.

The proposal was from a private company, not the state government.
