Singapore's biggest air-con interchange opens


Finally, the $24-million air-con Boon Lay Interchange opens today. Newspaper reports that most commuters give the thumb ups. However, my first thought on reading it was actually disgust. The thought of how much energy are we going to spend just to cool the biggest air-con interchange at one of the hottest cities, just makes me feel it was extravagant. Hopefully, there are energy-saving measures and the air-con temperatures are appropriate. Searching on the internet, there are comments at Straits Time on the air-con, the interchange built for foreign, needing more buses and not aircon. SGForum had a more detailed discussion.

Regardless, the reports end with the unsurprisingly trend of more air-con hub. Transport Minister Raymond Lim had said in August that the LTA will build more "integrated public-transport hubs" that give commuters easy access to adjoining shopping areas and other transport modes.

The next air-conditioned integrated interchanges, being built at Serangoon and Clementi, are slated to open in 2011. In the next 10 years, commuters can also expect such interchanges in Jurong East, Bedok, Joo Koon and Marina South.

What does that mean? is that like a conference about air conditioners? or what? I really loved joining conferences and seminars because I really want to be learn about things which I didn't know yet. To focus on the topic I will tell you that I really enjoyed last time when we had our seminar on proper usage of split system air conditioner ahm not just split but the entire air conditioning topic.
