Buangkok Bus Interchange

Buangkok Bus Interchange is an upcoming Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) located at Buangkok, currently under construction as part of an integrated community hub which is targeted for completion in the first half of 2022.  The interchange will be located next to Buangkok MRT Station.


Brief History

Plans for the interchange were first mooted as part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA)’s 2013 Draft Masterplan. Located in the heart of Buangkok neighbourhood, the interchange will be part of a mixed-use development envisioned as an integrated community hub to meet the needs of some 20,000 residents in Buangkok.

The proposed mixed-use development will have an integrated community and transport hub with a bus interchange on the first storey, a hawker centre on the second storey and a community club that spans across three storeys, alongside childcare centres and retail shops. Located adjacent to Buangkok MRT Station, the development will also be a transport node for the residents of Buangkok.

As the focal point and an identity marker for the Buangkok neighbourhood, the URA prioritized thoughtfully-designed public spaces which were well integrated with transport and community uses. A tender for the development of the land parcel was launched on 28 December 2017, and was awarded to Siena Residential Development Pte. Ltd. and Siena Trustee Pte. Ltd. (as Trustee-Manager of Siena Commercial Trust) at a tender price of S$777.78 million on 16 August 2018.
