New MRT and LRT Trainsets
The first few Bombardier Innovia APM 300R (C801B) trains for the Bukit Panjang LRT are expected to arrive in Singapore later this year. 19 single-car C801B trains were procured, to replace the 19 C801 trains which entered service in November 1999.
The Bombardier Movia CR151 trains are also expected to be delivered this year before being put into passenger service from 2022.
More Alstom Metropolis C851E trains are expected to arrive, following the delivery of multiple trainsets for the North East Line last year. These trains are destined for the North East Line and Circle Line.
Integrated Train Testing Centre
The first phase of the Integrated Train Testing Centre (ITTC) is targeted for completion by end-2022, in time for the testing of Alstom Metropolis C851E trains for Circle Line 6 in 2023. Full completion is expected by end 2024. The 50 ha site is situated at the former site of the Raffles Country Club, and enables the testing and commissioning of rolling stock and rail subsystems for both new and existing rail lines.
New Electric Double Decker Bus
The BYD K9RC double-decker electric bus is expected to begin revenue service trials later this year.
New Bus Interchanges and Terminals
A part of Hougang Central Bus Interchange is expected to be relocated to facilitate the construction of the Cross Island Line, and a Temporary Bus Parking and Driver Facility is expected to be opened for service soon.
Tampines North Temporary Bus Interchange is scheduled for completion by 2022, in tandem with upcoming residential developments in Tampines North. Buangkok Integrated Transport Hub is also originally scheduled for completion this year.
No bus packages are due for renewal this year, as five of SBS Transit’s contracts have been extended at a revised service fee rate as part of the Transition of Downtown Line to Version 2 of the New Rail Financing Framework from January 2022,
In 2017, Punggol, Tengah and Jurong Innovation District were identified as areas where residents and workers can turn to self-driving buses and shuttles for their first- and last-mile commutes from 2022. At these three new towns, it is envisioned that robot buses will run scheduled services during off-peak periods to complement human-driven ones, while driverless shuttles can be summoned on demand by commuters.
All information in this article is based on previously-announced information. These scheduled completion / delivery dates are subjected to delays, in view of construction and shipping delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
