      According to an article ("Old Singapore Poly home may be conserved") published by The Straits Times on 29 August 2015,

      "" The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be working in the area from the first quarter of next year to relocate the existing Shenton Way Bus Terminal along Keppel Road to a plot of land near the Bestway Building.

      The new bus terminal will be ready in 2017, and have additional facilities such as a canteen and passenger service centre.

      An LTA spokesman said a single- storey structure within the Bestway compound will be demolished "to facilitate the relocation". But the building will not be affected by the relocation of the bus terminal. ""

       

      Most likely this will happen after mediacorp TV12 have shifted to mediapolis at buona vista

      Hmm, is there security there? Unless no security, then you can go take a closer look at what rego are they... If possible any buses missing from SBST?

      Press Release of Cirlce Line Stage 6

      Expansion of Circle Line’s Kim Chuan Depot

       

      7. To cater to future needs, Kim Chuan Depot will be expanded to almost double its capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will also house 550 buses, which will allow us to optimise land use.  The expansion of the depot will be completed at about the same time as CCL6 in 2025.

      There will be a bus depot located in the vicinity of Kim Chuan Depot...

      Kim Chuan bus depot will be a multi storey bus depot....

      Sorry to ask this late, Mediacorp still occupying the place huh? I thot all moved to Caldecott Hill...

      If they want to restore this building, then I would suggest that the building could be a recruitment and simulation centre for SBS Transit/SMRT/TT (Future) drivers. At the same time, maybe level 1 of the building can have a proper lounge room, facility room, recreation room for drivers.

    • New Bus Terminal at Changi Business Park.

      (at the junction of Changi South Avenue 1 and Changi Business Park Central 2)

       

      Apparently, the new bus terminal has twelve bus parking lots, which means it can accommodate around four to six bus services.

       

      Meanwhile, there is a bus terminal at Changi Village Road that has four bus services. There seems to be around sixteen bus parking lots.

      Well, I was wondering if the new bus terminal would replace the bus terminal at Changi Village Road. However, I feel that there would be more cons than pros. So, no.

       

      I guess other bus services will be re-routed to terminate at the new bus terminal.

      Bus Service 20 is very likely.

      Other than that, I do not think there would be any existing bus services being re-routed to terminate at the new bus terminal.

      The new bus terminal is likely to have only new bus services.

      Anyway, Changi Business Park seems to be under-served today.

      I guess there will be around three to five new bus services at the new bus terminal, serving the people working at Changi Business Park, to connect them to various MRT stations and Bus Interchanges.

       

      Bedok and Pasir Ris towns are likely, so that's two bus services. One more can give to Bedok North area. So that's three.

      If can accommodate up to five bus services, we can have one to Changi Village, and another to the North-East.

      How would Changi Business Park Terminal replace Changi Village Terminal?? Where do you propose sv 2, 59, 109 to terminate in this case?

      And which are the 4 services terminating at Changi Village - it is only 3 with sv 29 looping there.

      CGV used to have a lot of services until all but Svc 2 got withdrawn, the other 3 are not original

      Bedok is the most practical, but risk duplicating either Svc 14 (via Bedok Nth) or Svc 35 (most direct). Also, 35M is used currently

      Pasir Ris have Svc 5, but takes a big loop via Changi Nth. Most direct link will probably be via Dr 1 and Loyang, but will duplicate almost half of the services in Pasir Ris. Best suggestion seen here involved rerouting Svc 39 to CBP, but requires it to detour via Tampines.

      Best route for a North-East to CBP is currently an M varient of Svc 34, serving CBP instead of CGA, but will probably end up being spammed with SDs

    • Can't find the actual topic for the TWRI, so gona post it here.

      There's rumors that TWRI will be opening by Jan 2016, unknown whether it is reliable or not..

      Yes... waiting for CBP to open... and then we will see new service

      Proposed route:

      Punggol Interchange >> Punggol Central >> Punggol Way >> Punggol Field >> Punggol Road >> TPE >> Tampines Ave 10 >> Tampines Ave 1 >> Simei Ave (ITE) >> Expo Halls >> CBP

      Pros:

      - Connects Punggol West Town (43 part) / Punggol Field (119 part) to Punggol road/TPE stops (with new developments opened this year and next year need this)

      - Connects Punggol town to Temasek / Changi Hospital / ITE / Expo / CBP

      - Loading expected to be very high in peak direction

      - Relieve some loading on sv 34

      Cons:

      - Expect uni-directional loading
