More on the Malaysian Bid

Short article in the Malaysian Business Times on MTrans, the 3rd prospective contractor.
MTRANS Holdings Sdn Bhd, the parent company of monorail operator KL Infrastructure Group Bhd, is keen to participate in the development of a US$1.6 billion (US$1 = RM3.75) second monorail system in the US city of Seattle.

The company is said to have conveyed its interest to develop the 22.4km monorail system for Seattle Monorail Project (SMP), an independent agency that would build, own, operate and maintain the transport system...

MTrans is one of only three urban transit monorail builders in the world, after Bombardier of Canada and Hitachi of Japan.
"Second monorail system" makes it sound like the existing monorail is actually a "system".
