Tampines North Temporary Bus Interchange

Tampines North Temporary Bus Interchange is an upcoming bus interchange at Tampines North, situated along Tampines Street 62. It is scheduled for completion by 2022, in tandem with upcoming residential developments in Tampines North.


Construction

On 30 April 2019, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) called for a tender (PT372 – Proposed Design and Construction of Bus Interchange & Associated Works at Tampines North).

Temporary Bus Interchange

In a response to a media inquiry by 8World in July 2019, an LTA spokesperson revealed that as plans for the Tampines North Integrated Transport Hub are still in progress, a new Temporary Bus Interchange in Tampines North will be built to meet the transport needs of residents in the new estate.

It is likely that the Tampines North Temporary Bus Interchange will be built on Reserve Site next to the proposed Integrated Transport Hub, and will serve as Tampines North Bus Interchange until the mixed-use residential and commercial site with an Integrated Transport Hub development is completed. According to the URA Master Plan 2019, these sites are demarcated as Reserve Site and a Commercial & Residential respectively.

      Bukit Merah was built in the early 1980s even before MRT came about. To decommission it would be quite impractical given the number of routes that originate from there. If Harbourfront could accommodate most of them it would mean half the problem solved.

    Why is the actual Tampines North ITH so far away from the Tampines North Cross Island Line MRT Station? (as seen on the video at the Channel 8 news website) Perhaps the government may want to chose another site for the actual Tampines North ITH in future, so that the ITH is next to the Cross Island Line MRT Station.

    This is an absolute waste of money and land space. Its already ridiculous to have 2 interchanges in the same district. Making things worse now 3?!?!

    Tbh, that area in the picture, is currently served by 68, which would only take 5 minutes to tampines int. If demand strong, just add in few more routes into the area (Note that sengkang – Tampines route 27 is quite popular and pax from sengkang area tend to stand 20-30minutes since DD not allowed). Service 164 should Originates from Compassvale Int, passes by sengkang secondary, towards rivervale, then pass by all the residential area (S86 route), towards TPE, then tampines go around those stops 68 is currently serving, before heading towards pasir ris.
