It now has cladding!
Exits and entrances should try to serve people from Siglap Road and Upper East Coast Road.
Distance from the station to Upper East Coast in a straight line is about 350m. That’s going to be a very lengthy exit.
Should have bus terminal too
not for this, but Marine Terrace needs one for 134 and 150
