Introduction

After Sengkang West Bus Depot, Gali Batu Bus Terminal is the sixth bus depot that LTA has created and funded. It is also the second multi-story bus depot that LTA has ordered (not counting East Coast Integrated Depot). The depot gets designed to handle more buses when they get added over time due to the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) and Bus Contracting Model, which enhances total bus capacity (BCM).

The depot will be erected close to the Downtown Line’s Gali Batu MRT Depot, near the Kranji Expressway, and will get built east of the present depot stabling area-cum-bus terminus.

Location of Gali Batu Bus Depot

The acceptance of amendments to the URA Masterplan 2014 in August 2017 verified the placement of Gali Batu Bus Depot. The six-story multi-story depot will be furnished with parking spaces, washrooms and facilities for refueling, shops for repairs and maintenance, and offices to support regular bus operations.

According to LTA’s updated data from August 2021, the project will be finished in 2024 and have a capacity of “around 500 buses.”

Although it is not yet official, the bus package designated for Gali Batu Bus Depot will probably be assigned to the Choa Chu Kang-Bukit Panjang Bus Package and serve as a substitute for Kranji Bus Depot. The depot gets expected to get – finished in 2024 (excluding delays brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic and Greatearth’s insolvency), and the route package is due for contract renewal in 2023.

The COVID-19 outbreak caused the local construction firm Greatearth to fail in August 2021. The Malaysian infrastructure company Gamuda’s Singapore branch, Gamuda Berhad Singapore, and the LTA’s joint venture partner were – in talks on how to “maintain project continuity and minimise the influence on the deadline for completion. The depot was only around 15% built and was supposed to get finished in 2024.
