      I remember carbikebus and I were discussing abt this b4, and we agreed that it is a potential spot for the combination of both the current BV and Ghim Moh. However, theres no news frm the authorities, so i guess have to wait long long then!

      After closing BV swimming pool, and now if closing the BV bus terminal as well... I think I better sell my BV flat fast.

       

      It's best to keep the BV terminal as it is.

       

      Other estates are having better amenities, only my estate having amenities taken away.

      Hi mr iamgoondu, your estate is full of amenities. Even though swimming pool (ever since in their plans long ago) is gone, it has added holland village mrt. There is holland village and rows of 7-8 banks, a medical building, 2 markets cum hawker centre, bus terminal, buona vista mrt, shopping malls galore and is near to NUS and NUH (within a bus trip away). Cheers. Thanks.

    • Just leave the GM and BV bus terminals as they are. Both have their purposes. GM bus services serving the GM estate, and BV bus services serving the BV estate. 

      Consolidating both terminals in one location will impact badly to residents in either estate.

      Is this the plan? This seems to be in the open space on other side of the MRT line, next to CCK Dr??

      I heard this is more of a temp arrangement than a permanent one?

    • This looks like another Woodlands Int where alighting passengers have to walk through the berths -.- But at least its better cos all berths are within easy reach

      something catches my eye.

      the extra tracks.

      but then this Temporary Chua Chu Kang Interchange looks a bit cramp despite the amount of traffic it could receive.

      I assume the extra tracks have something to do with JRL?

      Unfortunately the image is broken on my side...

    • It appears to be going towards Yew Tee though. Why have they decided to build overground instead of underground?

    • I believe that's a rendering mistake.

      The "extended" LRT tracks seems to collide with Northvale condo.

      Its also impossible for an extension given the clearance between the Jurong East-bound MRT track and condo in reality ...

      i doubt that JRL will do so.

      however, left side has more clearance than the right side. 

      NorthVale is to the right and no, BPLRT will not be extended.
