Punggol Point Station (PW3) on the West Loop of the Punggol Light Rapid Transit (LRT) system will open for passenger service on Thursday, 29 December 2016. This will provide travelling convenience to commuters, especially those staying along Ponggol Seventeenth Avenue.
Mr George Chew, 67, a businessman, said, “This is definitely good news! With the opening of the Punggol Point Station, I see myself taking public transport to work! I definitely look forward to its opening!”
Train services will continue to operate as usual. This means that from the start of operation to 3pm daily, the LRT trains will operate in one direction from Sam Kee Station (PW1), Punggol Point Station (PW3), Nibong Station (PW5), Sumang Station (PW6), Soo Teck Station (PW7) to Punggol Town Centre Station in a continuous loop.
From 3pm to the end of service, the trains will move in the opposite direction, departing from the Punggol Town Centre Station and arriving at Sam Kee Station (PW1) last. This arrangement provides the majority of commuters with a faster way to get to the Town Centre during the first half of the day and back to their homes during the second half of the day.
Trains will continue to operate at a frequency of between seven and eight minutes throughout the day. There is also no change to the timings of the first and last train.
The remaining two stations - Teck Lee Station (PW2) and Samudera Station (PW4) - on the Loop will be opened when their surrounding areas are developed.
