A third entrance has been completed for the Bukit Panjang MRT station, the newest addition to the sprawling estate. The underground linkway, called Entrance C, will serve 8,000 households and 50 housing blocks. This is an important improvement for Senja residents, who will no longer need to cross the busy Bukit Panjang Road to reach the station. Residents will also benefit from a nearby Senja Soka Centre, Pacific Healthcare Nursing Home, and West View Primary.
The underground linkway is expected to be finished by the end of this year, giving residents easy access to the nearby MRT station and HDB blocks. Construction on the linkway has caused noise and dust problems for residents, so it is not a pleasant experience. The project is not part of the Downtown Line project, but the Swiss-German civil engineering company Ed Zublin, which built the Downtown Line, has stepped in to help with the construction.
