[quote=djf01]The physics is very very simple (to the point it's probably not correct enough for these purposes). Calculating Stopping time using v=at where a=-1 & v = 80kph = 22.2m/s = 22.2s. A "saf ...

Are you kidding?  A NWRL metro thread discussing a Northern Beaches monorail?  It's barely on the right website much less the right thread!

No - you are right - that was a degrees/percent cock-up on my part.  6 degrees is typical.

Ah, here we go. A video of an existing (quite old) monorail system that shows how tilted they can get. I think this appears to be around 6 to 8 degrees, but I could be wrong.

For track dedicated to a particular service, the maximum cant is set by passenger comfort in the event that a service stops on the section. Something like 6% is typical.

it's fact for sydney monorail. try the newspaper archives.

Uh huh. Meanwhile, the Sydney monorail was actually spec'd at 4.5% gradient up, 6.5% gradient down, most modern mon ...

we also found out the monorail's cannot climb hills.

You see? See what I mean? Wilful ignorance and irrational bias.

[quote=djf01]To take the suggestion slightly seriously for a moment, I think maglev aside, monorails really only offer an aesthetic rather than functional engineering difference over other conventiona ...

Another aspect is that when a manufacturer says "up 80 km/h", they might be getting a little hypothetical at the upper end of that range.

Also the fact (AFAIK) it's supposed to be a fully automated system.

Copenhagen metro is also fully automated and yet has 30 second dwell times.

Handy to know. I'm just going from what Sydney Buses lists for chartering purposes.

[quote=viaprojects]we have that option on the ground they are called busses. the only problem is theres no main bus station in the city to fix the long line of busses in the city. the new light rail m ...

Monorail? 58km of monorail? No, my friend. It is slow. It has no capacity. It is a bastard to deal with in the event of a breakdown.

You need money, the will, no NIMBY's.

The only way I can see major infrastructure being built on a epic scale is the installment of a Communist run government for a decade.
