Realigning Turf Club Road

Contract ER461 is a small road project that was tendered out at the beginning of this year. Awarded to Jupiter Builder at a contract sum of S$2.4m, the road project complements C917A by permanently realigning Turf Club Road so as to simplify the intersection design and make way for the bus bay at the future Sixth Avenue station's entrance B. Works commenced around 3 months back and are midway to completion.

The bus stop along Dunearn Road has been temporary relocated forward as the former bay lies in the path of the new road. The temporary bus stop will remain in place for another year or so until MacDow completes the permanent bus stop that will be integrated with the POB entrance. As part of the project, Dunearn Road will also be widened after the canal crossing at Sixth Avenue to extend the existing right-turning lane for the U-turn to Bukit Timah Road.

Casting for the POB landing's foundation had just begun this week. Across the road, escalators have also been lowered down the main entrance last week with yet another rare encounter.
