Goodbye Bukit Timah Fire Station… Welcome SPECTRA…

A couple of weeks ago, I was wondering why the old Bukit Timah Fire Station and buildings along Upper Bukit Timah Road are having a new makeover.

I found out here that the most famous landmark of Bukit Timah is under construction to be transformed into a bustling centre for education, arts, sports and adventure.

Vacant since April 2005 as the firemen and families had already moved to the new Bukit Batok Fire Station located along Bukit Batok Road.

Built in 1956, the 4th fire station to be built in Singapore was leased out to Spectra Investment for 3 years. It will become Singapore first and only fun-filled Arts and Adventure enrichment hub for young artists, musicians, crafters, designers and great outdoor adventurers, under one roof.

Come September, I’m wondering how the traffic condition at the junction of Upper Bukit Timah Road and Old Jurong Road will be when vehicles starts to use the distinctive red doors.
