Contract DE142 for Proposed Multi-Storey Gali Batu Bus Depot was published on 22 October 2018, and was awarded on 12 November 2019 to Greatearth Corporation Pte. Ltd. – Gamuda Berhad Singapore Branch Joint Venture .
Gali Batu Bus Depot is the sixth Bus Depot (after Sengkang West Bus Depot) that LTA developed and funded, as well as the second multi-storey bus depot commissioned by LTA (not counting East Coast Integrated Depot).
The Depot is intended to accommodate additional buses that are being introduced over the years, as the overall bus capacity increases under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP). and Bus Contracting Model (BCM). The depot will be located next to the Downtown Line's Gali Batu MRT Depot , to be built east of the current depot stabling area-cum-bus terminal and adjacent to Kranji Expressway.
