Some news regarding Hume station:

陆路交通管理局:检讨“谦道站”客流量 或投入运作

陆路交通管理局表示,当局目前在检讨市区线“谦道站”(Hume)的预估客流量。如果当局判断“谦道站”有足够客流量,将让地铁站投入运作。

有两名公众本月向本地报章致函,提供有关市区线“谦道站”的反馈。这两则文章的标题为,“为什么让‘谦道站’维持关闭?",以及"有足够需求开通‘谦道站’"。

陆路交通管理局媒体关系署长林玮琪在《海峡时报》回复这两名读者时表示,在建设新地铁路线时,当局与本地多个土地使用机构紧密合作,为未来的发展做出计划,而“谦道站”也包括在内。

“要将这些基础结构转为能完全投入运作的地铁站,以及开始营运,它涉及显著的费用。因此,必须确保有足够的客流量,来证明这笔开支是合理的。”

林玮琪表示,鉴于“谦道站”附近有多个自然景观和文化遗产,而且市区重建局对铁道走廊有所计划,陆路交通管理局目前在检讨“谦道站”的预估客流量。如果当局判断“谦道站”客流量足够,“谦道站”将落实成为正式的地铁站。

“谦道站”目前是滨海市区线第二阶段路线的唯一一个“空壳”地铁站,介于山景站(Hillview)和美世界(Beauty World)站之间。

今年3月,当时负责武吉甘柏区基层事务的蔡厝港集选区议员刘燕玲,在国会参与交通部开支预算辩论时,要求交通部和陆路交通管理局考虑开通“谦道站”。她当时透露,她自2011年起,多次向当局做出要求,但都被回拒

上任交通部长吕德耀当时表示,由于开通地铁站所涉及的费用高,因此必须有足够的乘客量才能落实

不过,林玮琪指出,虽然目前该地段没有地铁站,但陆路交通管理局确保居民获足够的巴士服务。例如,从本月27日起,居民可乘搭巴士,直接通往附近的市区线地铁站,包括山景站和美世界站。

Ridership projection for Hume station under review

We thank Mr Paul Pang Kim Phong ("Why leave Hume station closed?"; Forum Online, Dec 8) and Mr Varun Naidu ("Adequate demand to open Hume train station"; Dec 9) for their feedback.

When constructing new rail lines, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) works closely with land use agencies to make provisions for future developments. The Hume station box is one such instance.

To convert these basic structural provisions into a fully functioning station and then to operate it will incur significant costs.

Thus, there is a need to ensure that there is adequate ridership to justify the outlay.

LTA is reviewing the ridership projections in view of several nature and heritage attractions in the area, and the Urban Redevelopment Authority's plans for the Rail Corridor. The Hume station box will be converted into a full station if it is determined that there will be sufficient ridership.

Even though there is currently no MRT station, the LTA ensures that residents in the Hume area are adequately served by bus services.

Services 67, 75, 170, 171, 173, 178, 184 and 961 give residents direct access to Bukit Batok, Bukit Panjang, Clementi, Jurong East and Orchard Road.

Starting from Dec 27, residents will also enjoy direct bus connections to nearby Downtown Line MRT stations such as Hillview and Beauty World.

For example, Service 173 in the direction towards Clementi will be amended for a more direct connection from the Hume area to Beauty World station for the Jalan Anak Bukit to Upper Bukit Timah Road sector.

Residents can also take City Direct Service 653, introduced last year under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme, to commute directly to and from the Central Business District during the morning and evening peak hours.

Actually hor, if the commuters who tapped into the wrong Stevens' platform are smart enough, they can just enter the correct platform for free if they change to the correct "platform" at the following station.

Yes in fact I would expect that commuters who tapped into the wrong platform would probably only realise they are travelling in the wrong direction when they have already reached the next station.

I believe they either open the staff gates for the passenger, or escort the passenger through that mythical lift in the TEL transfer area to get the passenger to the correct platform.

There was this lady at the Open House who asked me where the BP-bound platform was. I had to tell her to go one more floor down. So some people do look where they're going - they just don't look enough.

Hi folks, fret not if you enter the wrong platform at the new Downtown Line 2 Stevens station by mistake. Simply approach the Passenger Service Centre for assistance. This will allow commuters to change to the correct platform without additional charge.

We will also review whether there can be changes to the charging policy to address this issue.

So yeah, as usual it's the journalists who were writing the articles without first receiving clarification from the authorities and the netizens complaining about every single thing possible.

Some of those Channel NewsAsia spoke to said the new MRT line will increase footfall in certain areas which would otherwise be less accessible by public transport.

MRT's Downtown Line 2 a step towards 'car-lite' Singapore, says PM Lee
27 December 2015



The 12-station Downtown Line 2 (DTL2), which comes online today, has been described by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as a step towards a "car-lite" Singapore.

Two million people already take the bus or train twice or more each day, according to the Land Transport Authority (LTA). That works out to about two out of every five people in Singapore

In the last week, Tampines Central 1 has been realigned to what it was before the construction started (red), with the entrance to the bus interchange reverted back as well.



Meanwhile the areas marked in blue (the entrance to the bus interchange for the last few years, as well as the area opposite the road) has been fenced up for construction of exits .

Exit C already has its basic structure up.

Exit A and B are now being constructed in the areas marked in blue.
