  1. Most likely it moving to Sungei Seletar Depot and possibly will disturb the industries who are working. It has accommodate up to 580 buses now including BRBP. if most of them goes Seletar depot, this depot might demolished and no longer operated by SBS Transit. Might be replace for future development.
