      I don't think 123 will be able to use DD south of Sentosa, even though if they use DD, might as well terminate at Resorts World Sentosa Terminus only ma. The rule is simple, the streetcar bridge is 4.3 metres in height. Our double decker is 4.4 metres in height.

      Same as JB Checkpoint/Woodlands Checkpoint.

      Might as well say, have a special service called 123A (Bukit Merah - Resorts World Sentosa via Orchard Rd) for double deckers. Like Joo Koon/Tuas Link case scenario.

      If 25 extend to UEC to relieve BDK why 155 even go BDK at all?

    • 123 call at RWS in 1 direction only?

    • 123M can be merged into 122 like someone here suggested in order to avoid confusion between 123/123M so it will be from HarbourFront - Commonwealth Ave via Kim Tian Road and Tiong Bahru MRT. At least this way 122 will be more utilized as compared to the current state it is in..

      After the amendment I forsee that 123 is probably going to be a cashcow route because its probably going to be pretty popular among tourists whose hotels are primarily in Havelock/Clemenceau/Orchard.

      As for DD on 123, Bukit Purmei Ave there got  DD restriction, no? Should just beef up 123M's frequency maybe the 123 DM3500s can fleet add to 123M.

      Would be even better if 123 can call at RWS in both directions. I guess LTA has their own reasons, but I'm still disappointed...

    • 123 can use bendy bus if need to. just transfer from SMRT. Maybe can also transfer 3-door SG4002G as well.

      Maybe LTA should consider getting more A24s under SG rego. These can be used where height restrictions preclude the operation of DDs on the route.

      Makes little sense that 123 will only call at RWS in the forward direction. What of those headed for TB and Orchard from RWS?
