The New Bridge Bus Terminal Road was built around 1970 for serving many bus services that terminate towards the New Bridge Road south end. It hence replaced the past roadside bus terminal, that used to cause road congestion frequently. After some periods, the bus terminals were then moved to the new terminal from the old roadside terminating point.
The terminal was used over a long period for housing many bus routes until they started constructing the East-West line around early 1990 and the then construction of North East line later in 2003. The housing states and new bridge road had several bus routes between them which were then amended or withdrawn from the new bridge road due to several bus realization schemes. The aim was preventing any wasteful MRT lines duplications, leaving all trunk routes behind.

On 18/03/2018, the new bridge bus station was then relocated to the Kampong Bahru bus terminal, that was built on the land that was formerly owned by the KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad), being the National Railway Operator of Malaysia. The new bridge bus terminal road that was before, with its car park that was adjacent to it, was then cleared and a surgery center was built there, which expanded the existing infrastructure at the SGH ( Singapore General Hospital). The built surgery center was then called an Elective Care Center which is then scheduled to become ready by 2022, where more specialist outpatient clinics, operating theaters, and inpatient facilities will be added to the SGH.
