New Okinawa monorail completes trial run with flying colors

Date Posted: 2001-12-07

The new Okinawa Urban Monorail, known as Yui-Rail, completed a successful 2.7-kilometer test run on Tuesday. Prefectural and city officials gathered for a ceremony at the terminus of the trial run to pray for the trainís safe journey. The monorail made two roundtrips on the section of track running between Naha Airport and Oroku Station, traveling at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour, far slower than the normal 40 kilometers per hour envisioned for regular service. Another trial run is scheduled for the entire length of track next October, with completion of the system scheduled for December 2003.
