    the last proposal, to squeeze a monorail between the buildings on either side of shing fung road (will be annoying for those residents) and the already completed elevated skypark over shing fung road, routed from cruise terminal to MTR only, although the route will be forced pass closeby to the new Kai Tak stadium, no mention of any other links/connections

    It says scrapped with reason given below. With the opening of Kai tak mtr, highly unlikely…

    In the 2020 policy address, chief executive Carrie Lam implicitly shelved the monorail plan, citing a feasibility study that suggested the EFLS should comprise a multi-modal transport system involving buses and pedestrian routes, rather than a railway, with the details of this newer proposal still unclear. Footbridges with travellators were proposed subsequently as an alternative.

    The one and only road that lead to the cruise terminal is a JOKE especially the traffic light section on the way out, that is a BIG BOTTLE neck, i used to work in Octa Tower and could see the traffic jams when any big cruise ships came in.
    They definitely need a Monorail system.

    There was going to be a monorail from West Kowloon to TST at one point.
