      If you say Reserved then LTA should opt out Bt Merah and Woodlands package respectively..If they think SBST/SMRT can managed those cross border svc well.

      Play wayang again?

      wayang or chut pattern, that i don't know.

      but giving SBST seletar package means LTA is having second thoughts.

      That one is just the negotiated contract. The actual contract may involve a different set of bus routes.

      Following the latest news announcement on 28th April (which was delivered after the date of your post), it's proven that the negotiated contract and the actual contract are the same.

    • Yeah. I know right.

    • Honestly, what’s with the Labour Day message at the television screens at bus interchanges and terminals? There’s broken English, and it looks like a chunk of text from afar. Quite hard to read.

      Then why u asking for update for lol.

      I would say this is more for enquiring about the "process" and "current status" of the upgrading works at WRI. Basically I would have also felt curious as to what is the current state of WRI now, because everytime I bypass a few areas where I can see WRI, it seems like "abandoned" with no works ongoing (although subsequently I do notice some areas with ongoing works).

      Next month. Trust me.

      is there any update on the Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange?

      Right now a construction site.

      What I foresee is that the bus interchange will be air-conditioned, to minimise air-con loss at the Thomson Line station, which is connected to the bus interchange.

    • The new Tuas Bus Terminal may open on 18 June, together with Tuas West Extension and the new depot.

      But unlikely it's for passenger boarding or alighting, because the bus terminal is actually above the locomotive workshop of the Tuas MRT depot.

      Anyway, the MRT map also don't have the bus interchange icon next to Tuas Link or Tuas West Road station. So, it's possible that the new Tuas Depot is not for passenger boarding or alighting.

      Definitely can..105 and other passby Clementi routes can shortened there also.

      I got a feeling LTA will eye another depot along Pasir Panjang area.Bt Merah package might be using Ulu Pandan on temporary only.Ulu Pandan suit Clementi package more.Bt batok depot and Ayer Rajah bus park can close shop if that happens.

    • Nothing really changes apart from the location of terminal, unlike Kampong Bahru, where the route of some services like 120 may have to modified.

    • Dear all bus fans, please take note that the Bt Panjang ITH is still NOT open to public. Today while doing a trial run there is a bus fan who went into the interchange & try to take pictures. When the management chased him out he argued that the sliding doors are open. Even though the doors are operating doesn't give you the right to enter the interchange. You can be charged for trespassing.
