      Can Beach Station hold up to 4 bus routes? If yes, we can scrap 188R and 963R and extend their respective parent routes permanently to Beach Station.

      Beach Station can have 2 more services after 123

      963 and 188 with high frequency may cause  jams in sentosa. Later hbf int left with 5 services. Also RWS8 no use liao.

      Route 61: EUN-Beach Station (operated by Serangoon contractor)

      Route 991 (new): BBT-Beach Station (operated by Chua Chu Kang contractor)

      61 better terminate at HarbourFront to maintain connection to HBF...

      Eunos -- Sentosa maybe still okay. Or, if Beach Station ends up to be too crowded, Eunos -- Harbourfront is a decent alternative.

      Bt Batok -- Sentosa cannot due to the loss of direct links between Commonwealth and Chinatown/Bugis. That end is better off to terminate at Marina Ctr or Lor 1 Geylang.

    • Seems Harbourfront Bus Interchange will have 1 less bus service when Service 123 was extended to Beach Station Bus Terminal on 30 July 2017

      Don't forget 123M. 

      Not sure whether there is enough parking space for 1 new service.

      1 new bus service? From Sengkang, Punggol or Hougang?

    • Hopefully new svc from Bt Merah package itself..They're the anchor operator of Harbourfront.500 capacity depot but only 18 service?Might as well refurbish and expand Ayer Rajah to accommodate 400 buses and let Clementi package use Ulu Pandan instead so that Bbdep can demolish.

      Routes 51 and 147 link Commonwealth with Chinatown. Bugis also served by 51. There is always the "ever-reliable" EWL too.

    • Some of you all seriously apply a job at LTA,123 extend to Beach Ter,You also want other service to extend there without thinking of how "big" the terminal itself.Later if 188 extended to Beach Stn,You all want 855,963 to terminate there also ah?

    • Wonder how 123's EDS destination towards Sentosa direction will be changed to after the amendment. It could be > BEACH STATION or > BEACH STATION (SENTOSA)  or > SENTOSA (BEACH STATION) or less likely just > SENTOSA. As for 123M, the EDS format  should  be changed to HARBOURFRONT - T. BAHRU from the current TK. BLANGAH - T. BAHRU.

      There is currently a spare berth between 65 and 80 currently in the interchange (Berth A2 previously used by 408). Service 123 currently occupies Berth A4.

      So the motivation of the extension of sv123 unlikely lies in making space for another extended service to HBF Int.

      But if they want to split a long trunk at harbourfront, they will need 2 seperate berths. One for the current service one for the new one.

      I prefer Route 10 to terminate at SWT and let Route 130 extend to KRT instead. HBF to TAM already has Route 65.

      But that means Route 10 will be full BN and UPDEP will have to take some duties for Route 130.

      Under the bus package,10 is under Tampines package which will be under East Coast Depot in future.Maybe a new short trunk?Afterall Bt Merah package is only 18 svc.

      123M: probably no change.

      Even if they want to split a long trunk service at HarbourFront, I doubt both legs would start together at HarbourFront. Most likely one leg would start somewhere else (e.g. Marina Centre?) so that there is some overlapping portions at the middle portion of the existing route ...
