Workers install pylons for the 1.1 kilometer, three-station shuttle monorail.
Intamin has clearly adopted this dual-railed guideway for its latest monorails, which begs the question... should a dual railed system be called MONOrail?
Track is ready for this ground level station
Here is how they hold pylons in place before the last batch of cement is poured.
Monorail! Yes, gradient changes still feature singular, non-split monorail track. The same can be said for turns. Do we call it a hybrid monorail? How about mono-duorail? That's a bit lengthy, but descriptive.

Some low level track, just high enough to be over pedestrians
These are bases for track, with the destination convention center in the distance.
It looks messy now, but this will be a spectacular river crossing.
