Great news! Am very happy with the announcement of Service 991 that will provide commuters in Keat Hong / Chua Chu Kang with a direct connection to Bukit Gombak MRT Station as well as the market and shops in Bt Batok.
Am happy with this announcement after making several representations in Parliament in recent years. Many residents have been asking for this connectivity and I have to thank our grassroots and LTA teams for working closely to make this a reality.
Service 991 will begin operations on Sunday, 8 July 2018 within Bukit Batok Town, and the extension to Keat Hong / Chua Chu Kang will begin later in Q4 2018, while we set up infrastructure such as new bus stops.
From LTA website:
Service 991 will be implemented on an interim route plying between Bukit Batok Bus Interchange and Bukit Batok West Avenue 5 (loop) via Bukit Batok Central, Bukit Batok West Avenue 3, Bukit Batok West Avenue 6, Bukit Batok Street 11 and Bukit Batok West Avenue 8. The new service will link housing developments in Bukit Batok West to Bukit Batok Bus Interchange / MRT Station, as well as to schools such as Princess Elizabeth Primary and Millennia Institute, and amenities such as West Mall and the market and hawker centre at Bukit Batok Street 11.
With Service 991 now serving Bukit Batok West Avenue 3 and Bukit Batok Street 11, Service 941 will be amended to skip these sectors and ply in both directions along Bukit Batok Avenue 1 and Bukit Batok West Avenue 8. It will also loop around Bukit Batok West Avenues 6 and 9, improving connectivity between the new housing developments in Bukit Batok West and existing Bukit Batok developments.
Service 991 will be further extended to Choa Chu Kang by Q4 this year. It will incorporate the route of existing Service 308, which will cease operations after Service 991 has been fully implemented. Besides improving local connectivity, the final route of Details of the final route of Service 991 will be announced closer to implementation.
