Bidadari Integrated Transport Hub is a bus interchange located in the residential town of Bidadari. Connecting with Woodleigh MRT Station along the North East MRT Line, the interchange is a transport node for commuters heading in and out of town, allowing for convenient transfers between the rail network and bus services at the interchange.
Located at Basement 2 of Woodleigh Village, it is the first underground air-conditioned bus interchange below Housing Board Flats in Singapore. The mixed-use development combines 330 HDB flats, retail shops, a Hawker Centre and other community amenities, hence combining retail, residential and transportation facilities under one roof.
The interchange site is bordered by Upper Serangoon Road to the west; Woodleigh Link to the north; Bidadari Park Drive to the east; and Heritage Walk (former Upper Aljunied Road) to the south.
Slated for completion in 2019 (since delayed), Bidadari Bus Interchange will join numerous Integrated Transport Hubs (ITH) to have been built in Singapore, after Toa Payoh, Sengkang, Ang Mo Kio, Boon Lay, Serangoon, Clementi, Bedok, Joo Koon, Bukit Panjang and Yishun.
The interchange has a single vehicular concourse area with a bus park in the middle, with 15 rigid bus lots and 3 bendy bus lots. Vehicles enter and exit the interchange via a combined ingress/egress leading to Bidadari Park Drive.
The passenger concourse features three sawtooth boarding berths and an alighting berth with space for 2 buses. Pedestrian entrances/exits are located within the interchange, leading to Woodleigh Village and Woodleigh MRT Station. One boarding berth and one alighting berth in the interchange are dedicated for bendy-bus operations, featuring an 18m long bus bay.
An underpass is expected to be constructed to link Bidadari Bus Interchange with The Woodleigh Residences & The Woodleigh Mall, which form a mixed commercial and residential development integrated with a community club and neighbourhood police centre to the south of Woodleigh Village. Both developments will be connected to Woodleigh MRT Station via an underground link.
