The Terminal:

Gali Batu Bus Terminal is a bus terminal just off Woodlands Road, built on the roof slab of Gali Batu MRT Depot‘s expanded train stabling area and connected to Woodlands Road via a pedestrian link bridge. When opened, the bus terminal will serve as a terminating point for bus routes serving the Bukit Panjang area, and does not offer any rail connections.

The interchange has a single large bus park offering 20 rigid bus lots and 10 articulated bus lots. Vehicles enter the interchange via separate ingress and egress ramps leading to a spur route of Jalan Gali Batu, which runs adjacent to the terminal and on elevated ground. Commuters can reach the interchange on foot from either Jalan Gali Batu (next to vehicle entrance) or via Woodlands Road, where the overhead bridge connects directly to the bus terminal.

The passenger concourse features two sawtooth boarding berths and an alighting berth.

Historical Background

The bus terminal was constructed as part of a depot expansion project at Gali Batu MRT Depot. Contract 9061 for the Expansion of Gali Batu MRT Depot involved the expanding of the train depot’s stabling capacity from 42 trains to 81 trains by 2019, and was awarded to Hock Lian Seng Infrastructure Ltd in January 2015 at a contract sum of $137.4 million. The contract also includes the construction of Gali Batu Bus Terminal, built on top of the train stabling area and connected to Woodlands Road via a pedestrian link bridge.

The construction of the bus terminal above a rail depot mirrors that of Tuas Bus Terminal which was opened in October 2017.

The terminal will likely replace the nearby Bukit Panjang Temporary Bus Park when opened, and fall under the control of the Choa Chu Kang-Bukit Panjang Bus Package.

    Beside 75,184 & 700/A,2 BPJ trunk svc will be extended here which i assume one of them is 976.SBST 170X also candidate to start here.So if the two BPJ trunks start from here means BPJ will have one new feeder.

        I heard 972 may be extended. 974 may go to BPITH. 972 is meant to supplement 190 (acting as 190M)

    Actually, how is it that this location is economical to host bus services? The road connection to the main road is so long. Really more economical to operate at the Bukit Panjang Bus Park instead of relocating to the Gali Batu Bus Terminal.

    Also, the location is so remote from even the nearest community, which is the Yew Tee residential town.

    I have a feeling, this bus terminal is not actually for passenger service, but only for… fengshui purpose.

    Unless they are able to shorten the road connection to the main road. That road is really too long. It’s just going to add on to the mileage and waste the related petrol, time, manpower and buses.

    Unless, it’s meant to be the hub for Malaysia buses, ie those that currently base at Jurong East Bus Interchange, Queen Street Bus Terminal, etcetera. If that’s the case, then it’s worth it. Which means this Gali Batu Bus Terminal is meant to be the sister bus terminal of the Larkin Bus Terminal at Johor Bahru. While the other bus interchange and terminals capacity are freed up to use for other bus services, especially Jurong East Bus Interchange which may not have enough capacity even for the Singapore public bus services.
