Hougang Bus Park

Hougang Bus Park (formerly referred to as Hougang Temporary Bus Parking and Driver Facility (TPDF)) is a bus park located at the junction of Hougang Avenue 4 and Upper Serangoon Road, a short distance away from Hougang Central Bus Interchange and Hougang MRT station.

The facility is built to replace part of Hougang Central Bus Interchange which would be closed to facilitate the construction of the Cross Island Line in the near future.

Parking of buses at the facility commenced on 25 April 2022.

To facilitate the construction of the Cross Island Line, a part of Hougang Central Bus Interchange was expected to be relocated in the near future. A tender for Temporary Bus Parking and Driver Facility (TPDF) (Reference No.: CR1088) by the Land Transport Authority was published on 31 January 2019 and was awarded to CCECC Singapore Pte Ltd. Construction began in end-2019 and was expected to be completed in end-2021.

In an article by 8world published in December 2020, it is expected that bus routes that are relocated to the TPDF for layovers will continue to serve the existing Hougang Central Bus Interchange for passenger boarding and alighting.

In mid-2021, the final name of the facility was determined to be “Hougang Bus Park” according to permanent signages mounted on the building facade.

Hougang Bus Park commenced parking of buses from Hougang Central Int on 25 April 2022.

Facilities

Hougang Bus Park features 25 bus parking lots. Staff facilities include offices, lounges and a canteen.

Vehicle access to Hougang Bus Park is via a signalised traffic junction along Hougang Avenue 4. Secondary access is via a left-in/left-out (LILO) intersection with Upper Serangoon Road, which is usually kept closed when not in use.

      Every service that cannot find parking spots at HGINT will terminate there and some buses are allocated to park there not in use due to depot overcrowdness.

      Now HGINT each service is entitled to 1-2 lots marked on the road. Facing the interchange from office, right side 1st 2 lots are for spare buses, meaning any bus can park there. Following which is 2 lots for 329, 1 lot for 151, 1 for 74, 1 for 147, 1 for 132, 1 for 51. Seemed to be dual depot control services are all parked on the right.

      On the left from the front is 1 lot for 325, 1 lot for 324, 1 lot for 161, 1 lot for 107, 1 lot for 112, 1 lot for 113, 3 lots for 27 vice versa.

      Now 53M buses terminate at Kovan stop instead of heading back to HGINT for their meal breaks as observed.

          The bus park is under-used, might as well make it a temporary bus interchange and put some services to terminate there. Currently Hougang bus interchange is overcrowded due to no parking during peak hours and meal breaks. Can’t see how they are going to resolve the issue??
