Residents and commuters in Bukit Panjang can look forward to a more convenient transport system when the new Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) opens on 4 September 2017, said the Land Transport Authority on Tuesday (8 August).
This is Singapore’s ninth ITH and it will be fully integrated with Hillion Mall, which opened in February this year. The 546-unit Hillion Residences sits atop the mall.
To be managed by SMRT Buses, the new 7,350 sq m air-conditioned bus interchange is seamlessly linked with the Bukit Panjang MRT and LRT stations. It will be equipped with barrier-free facilities, priority queues with seats for the elderly and the less mobile, a nursing room and 120 bicycle racks.
Other ITHs are located at Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Boon Lay, Clementi, Joo Koon, Sengkang, Serangoon and Toa Payoh. Works on the Yishun ITH are on-going and it is scheduled to open by 2019.
