HDB Hub Basement Car Park


Having read in Lunch Is Served’s blog entry about visitors who park at the Fusionopolis’s basement car park, having difficulties finding the elevator as it’s concealed in one corner, I also want to write something on HDB Hub’s basement car park.

I’ve parked at this car park countless times already since HDB Hub has been around for years now. But almost every time, I have difficulties getting out of the car park because I couldn’t find the exit. I would follow the exit signs, one states “Toa Payoh Central”, while another states “Lorong 6 Toa Payoh”, but these signs would take me round and round instead of getting me to the exit ramp.

So I almost always have to drive one additional round inside the car park just to find this rather “obscure” exit ramp.

Such is a design flaw which I have to live with as long as I go to HDB Hub basement car park to park my car.

Of course I would have no such problem if I work at HDB Hub and have to park my car there every day.

Now to avoid this problem, I would park at Block 190’s multi-storey car park instead, provided it’s not full.

I experienced the same problem of going round and round and round at the KLCC basement carpark. :(

To HS: i bet chances of me getting lost if i ever drive to KLCC and park there are pretty high too :p

To LIS: i wouldn't say it's a mess, i have no difficulty finding my car. i just can't get to the exit ramp :p The only time i couldn't find my car was donkey years ago when i parked at Marina Square. Back then, it was probably the largest basement car park in Singapore :p In the end i had to find my car by tracing the way i went into the car park from the entrance :p

yeah, that means we are certainly not so good after all.

i usually will enter from the town garden side direct to basement three. usually there is carpark lots there and the lift is very near. finding the exit is no problem as the exit ramp is very near to the entrance and the lift.

To SF: Thanks for the tip, pal :) Actually i've also used that entrance many time before but i usually park quite far away from this entrance so i don't use it to exit. i should follow your advice and park close to this entrance cum exit to save myself time and unecessary frustration ;)
