Buangkok Bus Interchange

Buangkok Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) is an upcoming Bus Interchange 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, at 11 Sengkang Central, Singapore 544575.


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.


Based on the floor plans provided as part of the Sengkang Grand Residence development, Buangkok Bus Interchange would feature end-on berths with 19 parking lots.

    It’s almost July 2022, and yet no announcement on when the ITH will open

    The map for Buangkok ITH looks like all are end-on berth. It has been a long time since I see an end-on berth ITH (Previous one was Boon Lay & Pasir Ris Interim Bus Interchange). Looks like the ITH will have minimal bus services terminating there.

    Possible Candidates:
    Svc 114 (Maybe to extend its route elsewhere instead of looping at Buangkok Crescent)
    Svc 110 (Maybe extend to Buangkok ITH)
    Svc 163 (Shorten to Buangkok ITH) (Give space for Svc 374 to terminate at Sengkang Interchange)
    1 feeder service (32x suffix since HG is using 32x, if not can use 36x suffix)

      If you shorten 136 to Buangkok, later students and residents from Sengkang and Punggol will complain.

        136 can shorten to loop @ Serangoon Gardens instead.
