Skyports and Volocopter have announced a cooperation to build the first mobile Volo-Port for air taxis. UK-based global vertiport owner and operator Skyports and air taxi pioneer Volocopter unveiled plans for the Volo-Port – the physical landing pads for so-called eVTOL (electric take-off and landing) – through stunning designs produced by internationally renowned agency Brandlab.
Ground-based vertiport infrastructure is critical to the success of future urban air mobility (UAM), including air taxi operations in congested cities. Construction of the first Volo-Port will be completed later this year. The partners plan to build it in Singapore for the scheduled public flight trials in the second half of 2019. A full-scale Volocopter vehicle is on display at the Greentech festival.
The Volo-Port prototype will:
Enable real-life testing of the full customer journey to perfect the passenger experience;
Showcase planned customer services, including pre-flight checks, passenger lounges and boarding procedures;
Allow practical testing of ground operations and services, including battery swaps and charging, maintenance, safety and security;
Provide the opportunity for authorities and industry regulators to interact with the infrastructure and provide feedback before they are asked to approve the final design.
Vertiports are the only physical infrastructure required for air taxis to commence operations in cities in the near future. Volo-Ports are designed to provide passengers with a seamless air taxi experience that is safe, secure, and relaxing. They will merge with their surroundings, allowing passengers and passers-by to see through the whole structure.
The LTMP 2040 report contains detailed responses to recommendations made by the LTMP Advisory Panel (LAP) in February 2019 and accepted by the Government in March 2019. These recommendations were the product of extensive public consultations led by the LAP and facilitated by LTA officers. Over 7,400 responses were received from commuters, transport workers, academia, industry partners, unions, students and interest groups over six months. Their ideas helped to shape the Panel’s nine recommendations, which were grouped under three key themes – A 45-minute City with 20-Minute Towns; Transport for All and Healthy Lives, Safer Journeys.
To realise the goal of a 45-minute city with 20-minute towns, LTA will continue investing in public transport to make journeys more seamless and convenient. By 2040, new regional hubs outside the city will also bring jobs closer to homes, thereby shortening the average time taken to travel to work. We will also continue to expand the active mobility network to facilitate first-and-last mile journeys. Overall, commuters should have more time to live, work and play.
The LTMP 2040 report unveiled several key public transport enhancements. These include the expansion of the rail network, including several new stations and rail lines which will be developed over the next two decades.
Two new MRT stations will be opened on the North South Line (NSL) by the mid-2030s. Brickland Station will be added to the NSL. Located between Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Gombak stations, it will give residents in areas such as Keat Hong, Bukit Batok West, Pavillion Park and the Brickland district in Tengah town easier access to the rail network.

The CRL is Singapore's eighth MRT line and also our longest fully underground line. When fully completed, it will serve existing and future developments in the eastern, western, and north-eastern corridors, linking major hubs such as Jurong Lake District, Punggol Digital District and Changi region. The projected daily ridership of the entire CRL is more than 600,000 in the initial years, increasing to over 1 million in the longer term.
LTA will construct the CRL in three phases. Phase 1 of the CRL (CRL1) is 29 kilometres long, and comprises 12 stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill. This will serve residential and industrial areas such as Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North and Ang Mo Kio. More than 100,000 households will benefit from CRL1, and common recreational spaces such as Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will also become more accessible by public transport. Construction for CRL1 is expected to commence in 2020 and be completed by 2029.
Engineering studies are still being conducted for the other phases of the CRL, including the two underground alignment options in the vicinity of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. LTA has consulted various stakeholders and will take all views into consideration before deciding on the final alignment. Details will be announced when ready.
With the improved connectivity, CRL1 will shorten travel times for commuters between the central, north-eastern and eastern parts of Singapore. For instance, a commuter staying at Serangoon North and working at Loyang Industrial Estate will enjoy travel time savings of up to 70%, from 75 minutes by bus today to 25 minutes on the CRL1. As with the introduction of other new rail lines, LTA will review the bus services in surrounding areas to optimise connectivity to CRL1 and the rest of the rail network.
CRL1 will connect to the East-West Line at Pasir Ris Station, North East Line at Hougang Station, North-South Line at Ang Mo Kio Station, and the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line at Bright Hill Station. This multiplies the travel route options for many commuters’ journeys, thus enhancing the connectivity and resilience of our overall rail network.
The Founders’ Memorial station, located between Tanjong Rhu and Gardens by the Bay stations along the TEL, will improve accessibility for visitors to the Bay East Garden, where the memorial will be located. The station will also serve upcoming residential and recreational developments in the area.

SuperPark, the friendliest all-in-one indoor activity park in the world from Finland, is about to bring a new wave of energy into Singapore’s lifestyle scene! SuperPark Singapore will officially launch in Singapore on 17 November 2018.

Following SuperPark Hong Kong, that will celebrate its first anniversary soon, SuperPark Singapore will also live and breathe the authentic SuperPark concept and feature three distinct areas.
SuperPark Singapore will offer over 20 activities, based on three themed areas. Out of these 20 activities, three (iWall, SuperClimb and Ninja Track) are brand new game experiences and will be premiering at SuperPark Singapore.
At SuperPark Singapore, children and youngsters at heart will be thrilled by a wealth of new sports and activities, with all equipment rental such as scooter, helmet etc included in the ticket price. All activities will take place under the guidance of experienced staff, many of which are recognized coaches, and are safely away from rain, pollution, high UV or bugs and mosquitos all year round.
Family is at the heart of the SuperPark story. Taneli Sutinen, a Finnish businessman, was sitting in a café with a newspaper one day when his four-year-old daughter grabbed him by the arm and insisted that he come play with her. Tangled among the child-sized tunnels and slides, he had a light-bulb moment: why not create an activity park where children and adults could play side-by-side easily. The Superparking lifestyle was born.
The first SuperPark opened in Vuokatti, Finland in 2012, and was soon followed by 12 more sites in the Nordic country. Now, the ‘Superparking lifestyle’ is going global. SuperPark Singapore marks the continuation of an international expansion wave that includes Hong Kong, China, Sweden and France. The dream is to see hundreds, if not thousands, of SuperParks all over the globe, bringing families together through the power of joyful play.

This new 2-hectare test facility will support the Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of AVs – NTU (CETRAN), which was launched on 1 Aug 2016 to spearhead the development of testing requirements for AVs. Together with CETRAN and its partners, LTA will work towards developing the necessary standards and testing regimes for the safe deployment of AVs on our public roads. As there are no existing international test standards or international certification bodies for AVs, CETRAN will anchor Singapore’s position as an industry leader in supporting the testing and eventual widespread deployment of AVs.
Jointly developed by LTA, NTU and JTC, the centre in the Jurong Innovation District will be managed by the Energy Research Institute at NTU (ERI@N).
In order to be integrated onto public roads, AVs need to be tested on their communication with other vehicles, road infrastructure as well as dispatch and routing systems. To facilitate the testing of AV navigation controls in a real-world environment, the test centre is designed to replicate the different elements of Singapore’s roads, with common traffic schemes, road infrastructure, and traffic rules. The circuit also features a rain simulator and flood zone to test AVs’ navigation abilities under different weather conditions.
To monitor the progress of AV testing, LTA has installed a network of seven 360-degrees close circuit television (CCTV) cameras at strategic locations across the test centre. Real-time footage from these cameras will be streamed back to the AutOnomous VehicLe MonItoring and EValuation SystEm (OLIVE) at LTA’s Intelligent Transport Systems Centre. Through OLIVE, LTA will be able to integrate data from AVs and the CCTVs to evaluate the readiness of AVs for public use. Please refer to the Annex for the Test Centre’s layout and detailed features.
Since the very first polo created in 1933, Lacoste relies on its authentic sportive roots to spring optimism and elegance on the world thanks to a unique and original lifestyle for women, men and children.
Lacoste is a lifestyle brand, born of the inventiveness of a tennis champion, René Lacoste, who created the first polo shirt ever, initially for himself and for his friends, to be both relaxed and elegant on and off the tennis courts.
Nicknamed the Crocodile by the press in the late 1920's when he was a multiple Grand Slam tennis champion, René Lacoste had the animal embroidered on the blazer he wore on court, before making it the logo of his famous polo shirt.
Lacoste is famous today for its iconic polo shirt, available in a wide colour palette every season, but more broadly offers sportswear apparel for men and women, as well as shoes, eyewear, watches, fragrances, handbags and luggage, belts and home textile.
Located next to the Singapore Sports Hub, it has easy access for drop off, parking and is located next to Stadium MRT or a 600 metre sheltered walk from Kallang MRT.

adidas designs some of the best performance-driven athletic wear and sport-inspired fashion favoured by top celebrities and athletes globally. Check out their spanking new store at ION Orchard.
No other brand has a more distinguished history and stronger connection with sport than adidas. It is their mission to be the best sports brand in the world. Everything they do is rooted in sport. This is what “The Badge of Sport” stands for as a brand mark. It is the sharp end of their spear, seen on innovative products, as well as with the world’s best athletes, teams and events.
Canberra Station is a new MRT stop on the North-South Line. The North-South Line is Singapore’s first MRT line – parts of it were open in 1987 – but a new Canberra Station will be added to it in 2019.
As the elevated station is being “tagged” onto an existing line, construction will be challenging as the planners have to be mindful of working hours and work spaces.
When the new station opens in 2019, residents in the vicinity will have a direct connection to the MRT network, without the need to take a bus. Commuters travelling towards the city centre or Jurong East will save up to 10 minutes of travelling time.
To better facilitate commuter movement and enhance accessibility, Canberra station is designed with five entrances, with one connected to the new housing estates across Canberra Link. An elevated link bridge to be built across Canberra Link will enable commuters to directly access the city-bound train platform. The new station will also have covered linkways to bus stops, pick-up and drop-off points as well as bicycle parks.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the first three civil contracts for Circle Line 6 (CCL6) totalling S$1.75 billion. Works on these three contracts are expected to commence by the end of 2017 and complete by 2025.
The 4-kilometre CCL6 will have three stations, and will close the loop for the Circle Line (CCL) by connecting HarbourFront Station to Marina Bay Station. When the CCL6 stations of Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward are completed in 2025, the CCL will have a total of 33 stations, including 12 interchange stations with other MRT lines. It will also expand the rail network to areas such as Spottiswoode and the southern edge of our existing CBD.
With CCL6, commuters will enjoy a direct route between areas in the west like Pasir Panjang and Kent Ridge and key employment areas in the Central Business District, as well as upcoming developments in the Marina Bay area. Commuters travelling from areas like Paya Lebar and Mountbatten will also enjoy faster access to the retail and office centres in the HarbourFront area.
As an orbital line, CCL enhances overall connectivity and capacity, and strengthens the resilience of the MRT network by connecting the existing radial lines and creating multiple routes between stations. For example, a commuter travelling from Jurong East to Marina Bay will have the alternate option of transferring to the Circle Line at Buona Vista Station.
To cater to future needs, Kim Chuan Depot will be expanded to almost double its capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will also house 550 buses, which will allow us to optimise land use. The expansion of the depot will be completed at about the same time as CCL6 in 2025.

In addition to greater convenience for commuters with seamless transfers between the new air-conditioned bus interchange and the Bukit Panjang MRT and LRT stations, commuters using the new Bukit Panjang ITH can expect new features to enhance their overall journey experience. The new ITH will also feature several technological innovations to improve workplace safety, for example, a traffic management system to detect and increase bus captains’ visual awareness of bus movements within the bus parking area.
The Bukit Panjang ITH is the first integrated transport hub operated by SMRT Buses, who has invested significantly to ensure a positive travelling experience for commuters using the new ITH.
The Bukit Panjang ITH will take on a different look and feel, with its design and function planned around three key themes: Commuter Centricity, Workforce Oriented and Community Bonding. Please refer to the Annex for a summary of new features at Bukit Panjang ITH.
One of the few features unique to this hub is that commuters can soon borrow items such as portable USB charger, shopping trolley and an umbrella when they travel through the Bukit Panjang ITH. To borrow the items, commuters need to go to the WeCare Shop located near the bus interchange at the ground level of the connected Hillion Mall, also to provide an identity card (to be scanned) and a contact number. They may keep the items for up to three days, after which SMRT employees will contact them to return the things.
The Bukit Panjang ITH is fully equipped with barrier-free facilities which makes it convenient to take public transport, especially for commuters with mobility issues as well as commuters travelling with young children and prams. For example, graduated kerb edges are installed at all boarding berths to facilitate boarding and alighting of buses by passengers in wheelchairs. Bus berths and lifts have also been braille-equipped for the visually impaired.
Priority queues and accompanying seats will also be demarcated for seniors, less mobile and expectant mothers to rest and wait at, so that they can be accorded priority boarding for their buses.
All new and upcoming ITHs and Bus Interchanges developed from 2014 are also designed with standalone nursing rooms which comes with diaper changing amenities and a wash basin.

The Downtown Line 3 (DTL3) will open on 21 October 2017, making it the longest underground and driverless MRT line in Singapore, surpassing the 35.7km Circle Line (CCL). The completed DTL which will be 42km long will facilitate direct travel from the north-western and eastern areas of the island to the Central Business District (CBD) and Marina Bay areas, providing greater connectivity to residential, industrial and lifestyle enclaves.
