SINGAPORE: A new underground linkway with shops will connect Yishun MRT station to the new bus interchange at upcoming integrated development Northpoint City will soon be constructed, Frasers Centrepoint Limited (FCL) announced in a media release on Monday (Jul 20). This would benefit nearby Signature At Yishun and The Brownstone EC (executive condo) residents as they now enjoy greater convenience.
The linkway, to be named Northpoint Link, will supplement the current underpass connecting Yishun MRT station and the bus interchange via Northpoint Shopping Centre, FCL said. About 30 convenience and “take-away” food and beverage shops will flank the underpass, which will be fully air-conditioned, it added.
Construction of Northpoint Link will begin in Aug 2015, and is estimated to be complete in two years. FCL added that there will be diversions for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic along Yishun Ave 2 during the construction period, but there would be no compromise on the number of lanes for vehicles, as well as footpath capacity.
Northpoint City comprises the 920-unit North Park Residences, the Yishun Integrated Transport Hub, Nee Soon Central Community Club, a Town Plaza, a community garden and retail and F&B outlets. It is expected to be complete in 2018.
