The Petir Road interchange has a single vehicular concourse area and 15 rigid bus lots. Vehicles enter the interchange via Petir Road, which is adjacent to Block 181A multi-storey car park. The egress is via Jelebu Road. The passenger concourse consists of three sawtooth boarding berths and two alighting berths for buses. The interchange is connected to the retail portion of Hillion Mall via pedestrian entrances. The development is near to Senja Close EC which the new name will be called Senja Residences.
The new integrated transport hub in Bukit Panjang is set to open on Monday, 04 September 2017. During the transition period, many bus routes will change routes and stop points. The table below summarizes the changes in bus services that will take place. Most bus services that currently call at the Bukit Panjang Temporary Bus Park will now stop at the new ITH. Several bus services will remain at the temporary bus park, such as Bus Services 75, 184 and 700/A.
The new Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub will be Singapore’s ninth ITH. It will include seamless transfers, an air-conditioned bus interchange, a new MRT station, and a new, fully integrated Hillion Mall. The development will be one of the most important developments in the area. Once it’s open, the entire complex will have direct access to the Bukit Panjang MRT station and the Hillion Mall.
The air-conditioned bus interchange and adjacent commercial developments are all expected to make the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub a highly-convenient place to travel. With this new hub, commuters will be able to walk to the train station, or take a bus to the Hillion Mall, which is only a few minutes away. SMRT Buses will operate the bus services at the new bus interchange. The air-conditioned bus interchange will be equipped with dedicated boarding points and graduated kerb edges.
The newly confirmed Covid 19 case was linked to three previous cases and one other. The bus terminal is located at 15 Petir Road, and the driver was detected as part of a proactive case finding program. He tested positive for the virus on the same day that his three coworkers did. His serological test results showed that he had previously been infected. In addition to the driver, SMRT also disinfected the common areas and staff lounge at the transport hub.
