On 1 July 2002, the SkyTrain was opened. The track is 2.5 km long and 23 m high. After the commissioning of the SkyTrain had been delayed by a year due to software problems, the train stopped operations six times in the first two weeks of public operations and was then closed to 26 August.<ref name="eri-2002-447">Template:Cite journal </ref>
