The Jurong East Interchange was built in the 1980s to cater to commuters working in the Jurong Industrial area. The interchange will operate its last day today, 16 December 2011.
The Jurong East Interchange will be demolished to make way for the planned Jurong East Integrated Transport Hub. This will be developed over the next 10 years in line with the other developments in the area like the Jurong Hospital & Medical Centre and the malls being built there now.
A temporary bus interchange was built beside the Jurong East MRT Station and will serve commuters till the new Jurong East Transport Hub is completed.
Once the old bus interchange is demolished, another of Singapore's heritage is dust.
With that in mind, I was at the interchange yesterday to capture some of its last moments.
You can see the photos of the old & new temporary interchanges on my photo blog here.
