Chaos at Orchard MRT station!


I was at the Orchard MRT station this evening and what a chaos it was in there!
As Singaporeans knew, Orchard Road is currently undergoing a revamp, with the Ion Orchard shopping mall coming up an d some other major shopping malls getting a relift of its facade.
The chaos at the underground MRT station was caused by the reopening of an exit (the former exit directly to Wisma Atria shopping centre). The exit reopened but what a confusion it caused to the passengers exiting. Think many thought the exit still leads to Wisma Atria but as the sign indicated, the same old exit now points to Tangs shopping centre.
The exit was always quite narrow, worsening the queues and the chaos. There were some men in uniform directing traffic ('human traffic').
Never mind the mess, the authorities will sort it out soon. What I am interested is what Ion at Orchard shopping mall and other new shopping malls in Orchard Road will offer to shoppers. I hope they will offer something new and unique to shoppers else they will be yet another chips off the same block!
