    • A friend of mine say that now SMB3603B,SG5802H & 3 B9TL permanent parking at Woodlands Depot instead of the bus park.Some of the hanging pipings has been modified to create more safety clearances.

    • When fully complete,Punggol Int will have another 12 parking lots,2 more boarding berth,1 more alighting berth and new canteens

      According to Channel 8 news, the current Jurong East bus interchange will cease operations in the third quarter of next year. (http://www.channel8news.sg/)

      1. A new temporary bus interchange will be built, by the middle of next year.

      2. The new temporary bus interchange will be located opposite the current temporary bus interchange, between JCube and JTC Summit. Gateway Link will be closed, to combine the two parcels of land into one. Jurong East Street 12 will be expanded from 2-lane to 3-lane.

      3. The new temporary bus interchange will have the usual bus interchange facilities, like canteen and staff lounge. All 18 bus routes will relocate there.

      4. A 230m bridge will be built, to connect Jurong East MRT Station to the new temporary bus interchange. 

      5. The current site will be redeveloped into a mixed-used development, comprising of an integrated transport hub, and the headquarters of LTA and Ministry of Transport.

       

      Anyway, thank you lemon1974 for sharing this information. It was shocking indeed, to learn about it. If only the government had done better, when planning for the new developments around Jurong East MRT Station, back then in 2008 when the Jurong Lake District was announced.

      Nonetheless, the damage is done.

      Although this may be a mistake, at least now we got two very good malls - JEM and West Gate - and the scenery at level one, which would otherwise not be possible if they had built a bus interchange at level one.

      And also, a new road, a condominium and a shopping mall called West Gate. All these would not have been possible if the original Jurong East Bus Interchange had remain in the way, obstructing the developments from taking place.

      So, there's a good and bad to it.

      For sure there are change of plans, considering how much ambiguity there was back then. But at least now there is a better plan, in developing the area around Jurong East MRT Station.

      Besides, the new temporary bus interchange would be in use for around seven years (2018-2025), before the new permanent bus interchange is ready. The current temporary bus interchange has already been in used for six years (2011-2017), that by now it should have already "recovered the costs".

      By the time the permanent bus interchange is ready, the new temporary bus interchange would also have recovered the costs.

      Therefore, I think it should be okay to build a new temporary bus interchange to replace the current temporary bus interchange, to make way for a new permanent bus interchange.

      When will be the new Jurong East Bus Interchange be ready?

      Will PGL ever get a permanent interchange? I think the current one is only temporary.

    • Waiting for New New Bridge Rd Ter by next year.

      LTA should consider building a new Buona Vista Int thus can demolish Buona Vista and Ghim Moh Ter.Svc 32,48,74,74e,91,92/M,100,111,145,191,200 & 1 new feeder.

      4 Boarding,3 Alighting berths and 26 parking lots sound good enough.

    • Every weekday morning,There will be around 8-9 maroon color private coaches park at Loyang Depot

      I thought the New NBR ter is by this year end thou? with respect to some press releases

      and yah i agree that BNV can have new int by merging those 2 services, but highly unlikely LTA will do so in the near future since there isnt also any commotion ard that area. But if let say it does happen, i do you think splitting up 92 and 92M to 2 independent services is a good idea? 

      Wah but sekali that plot of land kena build offices/shopping mall/condo hahaha

      They can always built a shopping mall at Ghim moh/Buona Vista Ter.

      92 be Buona Vista-Ulu Pandan Rd and a new svc 110 Buona Vista-Science Park

      A new feeder svc can go to Ghim Moh Link

      It's considered an extension of Sengkang..And where do you suggest then?The objective is to get close to the MRT/Shopping Mall as close as possible.
