Underpass connecting ION Orchard & Tangs Plaza set for facelift

The underpass connecting ION Orchard and Tangs Plaza is set to get a facelift.

A spokesperson from ION Orchard said the pedestrian passageway will be widened to double the existing width, and there will be shops on both sides of the underpass.

According to the CEO of Orchard Turn Developments, Soon Su Lin, there will be a facelift which will be similar to the underpass connecting Orchard ION and Wheelock Place.

The move is expected to inject vibrancy to the old tunnel. The last time any major work was done there was in 1988.

Details of the upgrading will be out at a later stage.

The tender for the work has been awarded to CapitaLand and its Hong Kong partner Sun Hung Kai Properties.

The project is a joint venture between both companies.
