After years of discussion and lobbying, SBST has finally diverted bus service 85 to Sengkang West. From Sunday, 31 July 2011, Service 85 will call at three pairs of new bus stops along Sengkang West Way. However, from Punggol Interchange, it will call at these new bus stops only after 9am from Mondays to Fridays (excluding Public Holidays) and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
The details are as follows:
From Punggol Interchange to Yishun Interchange, it will stop at:
- Bus stop code 67559 (Before Fernvale Link)
- Bus stop code 67596 (In front of Block 432A)
- Bus stop code 67579 (Before Jalan Kayu)
From Yishun Interchange to Punggol Interchange, it will stop at:
- Bus stop code 67571 (After Lorong Tanggam)
- Bus stop code 67561 (Opposite Block 432A)
- Bus stop code 67551 (After Fernvale Link)
These new stops will be welcomed news as they will better serve residents living in the Sengkang West Way area. Residents from Fernvale can also enjoy this additional convenience when travelling to Anchorvale CC and Compasspoint.
