Diversion in Orchard underpass causes confusion
Pedestrians say more prominent signs displayed in the right spots will help
A diversion in the busy underpass from Orchard MRT station to the Tang Plaza building is causing confusion with pedestrians.
People use the popular underpass to get from the MRT station to the basement entrance of Tang Plaza. But construction work by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has resulted in a diversion in the tunnel.
Pedestrians trying to reach the train station from the Tang Plaza side have been confused by the closure of a section of the underpass that leads from the basement to the station.
The street-level entrance to the underpass has also been moved from the main entrance of Tang Plaza, across a driveway, to a pedestrian walkway where a bus stop is located.
