(MENAFN) A statement issued by UAE-based developer Nakheel said that the Middle East's first monorail will be in operation by April 2009 on the Palm Jumeirah with live testing starting in October, Gulf News reported.

He further pointed out that the monorail will carry around 40,000 people every day around the island. The trains will run every three minutes during peak times and every 15 to 20 minutes at off-peak hours.

The 400 million Palm monorail is the first to be unveiled in the Middle East and the company has laid 100 percent of the 5.45 kilometer track.

It is important to mention that the RTA is working closely with the Office of British Rail for the monorail's inspection and certification process.
