Kitakyushu Monorail - Page 4 of 7
Pictures and commentary by Kim Pedersen

Monorail guideway, blending in the hustle/bustle of downtown life. In the distance you can see a healthy grade to climb up over a pre-existing expressway.

Kitakyushu Monorail was also the first monorail in Japan to include a heavy dose of landscaping below the guideway.

More steel sections of track over lush landscaping.

Probably the most unique feature of the Kitakyushu Monorail is the Jono-Kitagata section. Here an expressway and the monorail were built together and share the same supports. More pictures ahead!
