Provide direct exits for MRT stations

I took the MRT to One North station and wanted to go to Pixel building. I got lost, in spite of having Google Map to guide me.

What is the problem?

The One North station comes out to a building called Fusionpolis. It is connected to other buildings, e.g. Galaxis. I did not want to go to any of these buildings. I just wanted to get out to the main road and look for Pixel building.

I had to depend on Google Map to get me out. However, Google Map did not have clear demarcations of the nearby buildings. I could not locate Pixel building.

I had to ask someone for the way.

What should be the correct way? Here are my views.

a) Each MRT station should have clear signs to the Exit that bring the commuter to the main road. Do not force the commuter to enter a mall which does not have clear sign on the exit to the main road.

b) On the exit, there should be a site map that shows all the buildings nearby, and also the bus and taxi stops.

When I was in Kuala Lumpur a year ago, I took the MRT. At the station, the main exit is to the main road. If I wanted to go into a mall, I had to enter by its front entrance. I found this to be a better arrangement.

I hope that the town planners in Singapore give better attention to the needs of the commuters, rather than the mall owners.

Minister Khaw – are you listening?

    Mrt in KL runs above the ground. New Spore lines run under and so you have to enter and exit the malls. Only problem I had was at the Esplanade station. At one of the entrance escalator, there was no sign that says it was the Esplanade station. I had to ask a smug personnel at the gate to verify. Anyway, if you do encounter the staff there, they may make you feel stupid for asking for directions.

  • Harder Truths:

    The East – West Line stations are poorly located along Jurong to Tuas – they were meant for tourists not locals.
    If you live in Jurong East or West you need to get to Jurong Interchange, Lakeside or Chinese Garden by walking or taking a useless bus service. It has been this way since 1983.
    People living in that part of the island were more or less treated as pariahs for a very long time. The whole area has not changed some thirty years on. Many of the other estates that were built earlier or later (eg. Clementi, One North) have much better facilities now, malls ,shopping centres and cinemas.
    Forever voting pappies (the last election polling 80% of the votes), this area has become living proof what devotion to the pappies will bring – basically forgotten.To the point where the opposition have given up in disgust.
    It will be interesting to see how Jurong voters will react this time around.

  • never voted pap:

    kl tan probably is 70% sheep who believed in pap lie about car lite so need to mrt bus when all he needed to do is to disobey pap lie about car lite and drive to Pixel Building swee swee.

    after GE2015 disappointment with 70% sheep, we really 100% ffff care whether 70% sheep walks to Pixel Building or crawls to Pixel Building.

    but as soon as they open their stupid mouth to moan about mrt bus we never hesitate to tell them to buy that car.

    cannot afford? don’t marry don’t have that child or children and make them grab drivers chambermaids cooks gardeners for pap Ljs and pap Cbs. DON’T. with the S$ saved, buy that China made chery qq or Korea made hyundai.

    don’t be stupid and go car lite. car lite is a pap lie. car lite is for pap ministers and their children. it is NEVER meant for 70% sheep.

    alas. only pap ministers and pap minister children don’t mrt bus.

    alas. alas. only stupid gullible 70% sheep and 70% sheep children mrt bus.

    Truly a land of WTF stupid ffffing 70% sheep.

    It’s platinum, claimed to be the largest by one in the internet.
    Likely to be certificates, much easier to hide and abscond.

    If you vote for the status quo, the truth will never be out.

  • What do i think ?:

    Jurong east is okay. We have alot of mall ( though i feel a bit over ).

    Jurong west or boon lay a bit f**k up. Sure, there’s a jurong point mall and its crowded but why because surrounding no hdb blocks with coffeeshops or barber shops or others except 1 or 2 mama shop or provisional shops. The nearest coffeeshop is at the next MRT station 2 to 3 bus stop. Thats why its crowded at the mall especially makan area but too costly. The cheapest is still the bus station canteen.

    The second crowded mall area would be the toilet. Quite jialat , always fully occupied. Sometime cannot even find a spot. Surprisingly the nearest more free up toilet is the bus station toilet. Next the mrt station but a bit working distance. In the worst case, theres a CC cum library opposite the road of the mall , more toilets.

  • Darth Vader:

    So if the station exit leads directly into Pixel building you’ll be very happy because you’re going there is it tkl? HEY STUPID, GET THIS STRAIGHT! THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU AND WHAT YOU LIKE OR WANT! WHY did the LTA decide to have the station exit in Fusionopolis? Because it is the LARGEST building in the area with the MOST OFFICES, THAT’S WHY STUPID!!!! Or to put it in another way, it benefits the MOST people. Also, having station exits located underground has ANOTHER benefit that a cropocephalic cretin like you can never understand; during rainy weather, when people will seek shelter in malls because they’re large public buildings, they can enter the station WITHOUT getting wet or making the floor wet and posing a safety hazard to other passengers

    But of course, you will NEVER understand this, will you tkl? And you know WHY, tkl? It’s because NOT ONLY are you a vain, arrogant, egotistical narcissistic old fool who think you’re smarter than anyone and everyone else when everyone else KNOWS you’re just a shallow, vapid clueless IDIOT, you’re ALSO a WHINY, SELFISH, SELF-CENTERED & SELF-ABSORBED ASSHOLE wjo ONLY cares about something that inconveniences you!!!! So you had to ask for directions to Pixel? SO WHAT????!!!! What’s the matter????!!!! You think it’s beneath you to talk to common “lesser mortals” is it?! You think you’re too good to talk to us commoners is it?! You think I’m being unfair to you?! Well just look at YOUR OWN behavior here!!!! EVERY TIME you demand changes, it’s ALWAYS because you experienced a minor inconvenience!!!! Has it like EVER occurred to you that what YOU found INCONVENIENT, OTHER PEOPLE find it VERY CONVENIENT????!!!! But you don’t care about any of that do you? To you it’s a problem because YOU were inconvenienced! With you, it’s ALWAYS about YOU, YOU AND YOU and NOTHING else!!!!

    You know what tkl, maybe you should do the whole world a favor by volunteering to get yourself and your good buddy gms abducted by aliens to Zeta Reticuli,, and DON’T EVER COME BACK!!!!

  • Ikanbilis:

    Google map is too general.
    In Singapore, you should use either
    streetdirectory.com or onemap.sg

    Not sure about iphone, but there are Android
    streetdirectory app and onemap app respectively.

    Oh! I’m using Baidu map. When you’re inside a building, it helps you to navigate with that building as well. Also, travelling from point A to B, it tells you what are the different types of transportation available, with AI big data to tell you the arrival time of the buses.

    Ha ha ha!
