Jurong East Bus Interchange opened on Sunday, 30th June 1985, located at 155 Jurong East Street 13 opposite CPF Jurong Building. The airy and spacious interchange was popular with many commuters. Many of the bus services were transferred from Teban Gardens Bus Terminal and some rerouted from Jurong Bus Interchange. The interchange catered mainly to residents and cross-border commuters taking buses to Malaysia.
In 2010, plans were underway to construct a new Integrated Transport Hub at Jurong East. The original bus interchange and surrounding plots of land were planned for commercial developments. Construction of Jurong East Temporary Bus Interchange was awarded to Sato Kogyo (S) Pte. Ltd on 17 Feb 2011, at a cost of S$5,980,000.00.
On 17th December 2011, Jurong East Interchange was closed down and operations shifted to the nearby Jurong East Temporary Interchange, located west of the MRT station and opposite the shopping mall JCube. The temporary interchange is expected to serve for around five years while the construction of the Integrated Transport Hub is underway.
The new Jurong East Bus Interchange was intended to be an integrated development comprising of a seven-storey shopping mall and a 20-storey office building above it. It would have been built along Gateway Drive, at the site of the old interchange.
However, in a change of plans, the future Jurong East Bus Interchange was re-sited to a new MoT-LTA integrated complex to be built on the existing site of Jurong East Temporary Bus Interchange. This building will house the Transport Ministry and the Land Transport Authority.
As a result, the current Jurong East Temporary Bus Interchange (TBI) will be demolished and a new temporary interchange will take its place, bordered by Jurong Town Hall Road, Jurong Gateway Road, Jurong East Street 12, and Jurong East Central 1. A 230-metre sheltered pedestrian overpass will connect the relocated TBI to Jurong East MRT Station. Features in the old TBI, such as air-conditioned canteen, nursing room and crew rest rooms, will also be available at the relocated TBI.
LTA Contract DE108 for the construction of the relocated Temporary Bus Interchange closes in August 2017. The current site is occupied by two grass fields bisected by Gateway Link. In tandem with these developments, Gateway Link will be closed and Jurong East Street 12 will be widened from two lanes to three lanes in each direction. The relocated interchange is expected to be operational in Q3 2018, where bus operations would be moved over so construction works on the integrated complex can begin.
The MoT-LTA Building is slated for completion after 2020. It will free up sites currently taken up by the two organisations, including those at prime locations such as North Bridge Road and Hampshire Road.
