SBS Transit buys 150 new Volvo double-decker buses for S$60m
By Derek Cher, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : A new fleet of double deckers could hit the roads by the second half of next year.

SBS Transit has ordered 150 new double-deck buses from Swedish truck maker Volvo at a cost of S$60 million.

The public bus operator says the new buses will be used to replace its existing older ones.

SBS has around 2,700 buses, of which 66 percent are made by Volvo.

This purchase is significant for Volvo, as it marks the first major order for its new double-deck chassis.

Volvo says the 150 chassis will be built in Sweden, while the bodies will be manufactured in Singapore by ComfortDelGro Engineering.

Delivery of the complete buses will begin in August next year.

And this will continue for 12 months before SBS receives all 150 double-deckers. - CNA

Expanding The Rail Network: LTA To Build Boon Lay MRT Extension



To enhance the public transport system for residents in Jurong West Town area and those working in the Jurong and Tuas industrial estates, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be extending the East West Line from Boon Lay Station westwards into the Jurong Industrial Estate.

This project, known as Boon Lay MRT Extension (BLE) for short, will add another 3.8-km to the existing East West Line. The BLE will be fully-elevated with two MRT stations. One station will be built at Jurong West Street 63, between Jurong Street 61 and Pioneer Road North, and the other station at Joo Koon Circle, near the junction of Benoi Road and International Road. Please see Annex for alignment and station locations.

The overall project cost will be about S$436 million. Construction is targeted to start sometime in the second half of 2005 and is expected to complete in 2009. Tenders for the contract are expected to be called in the first half of 2005.

Improvements to Public Transport System in Jurong West

Currently, the public transport needs of the residents in Jurong West Town area and those working in the Jurong Industrial Estate are served by the Boon Lay MRT Station and Boon Lay bus interchange. With the expected developments planned for the Jurong region, the demand for public transport service will increase.

Mr Ho Meng Kit, Chief Executive, Land Transport Authority said, "The BLE will therefore greatly improve the public transport system in the Jurong area to meet current and future demand for public transport travel. For example, instead of having to make a transfer via a bus service to get to Boon Lay MRT Station, residents in the south western part of Jurong West will be able to access the MRT system more directly with a new MRT station in Jurong West Street 63. Travel time for people working in the Jurong Industrial Estate is also expected to be reduced by up to 15 minutes. This improvement will make it more convenient for people travelling to work in the area."

Land Required

To facilitate the construction of BLE, one full lot and eight part lots, totalling about 28,000 square metres of land will be acquired. The listing of affected lots to be acquired will be gazetted today. Owners, who are affected, will be notified of the land acquisition separately by Singapore Land Authority.

"Station 1" and "Station 2"?

Anyway, the gap between the two stations seems rather large. Maybe they should add provisions for a new station in the middle?

You already answered it yourself. It's only a branch.

It's rather strange that LTA didn't even give proper working names to the stations. Prior to the announcement, I named them Yunnan and Joo Koon. Not sure if Yunnan is still suitable as I have expected the station to be further west to the one chosen.
