We know that there should be 7 stations for the Punggol branch, and from Pasir Ris East to Tampines North combined. With Elias now looking to be part of the Punggol branch, that leaves only 3 stations on the main line, so there should be 4 on the branch.

The reason for having the branch start in Pasir Ris is probably LTA wanted the entire stretch from Elias to Sungei Serangoon to be bored below the landfill level.
From the old AE consultancy documents earlier in this thread? Or am I missing something here?

I already explained it.

So, erm, forgive my idiocy, but has this gone out the window? I'm more interested in where that 7 stations figure has come from.

LTA could have several alignment options in mind for the branch line in question, and y2koh's map could be one of those that the AE was tasked with. Knowing LTA, there could be changes made to the no. of stations too, as demographics change and new areas developed.

Until the day the official alignment is announced, nothing is fixed for now and we just go according to the SIs locations and how they align.

Oh, I wanted to say...

The satellite terminal(s) will be served by one station too, recently discovered, ie. Shanghai Pudong satellite.

And I really do think that Seletar Airport will get its own station.

Is there any reason why Punggol stations are kept in that peninsula? Punggol goes halfway into Seletar too.

I wouldn't call that a satellite, if it's going to have its own ground transport facilities I'd call it Terminal 6. Besides, the Changi East master plan looks eerily like HKG to me, and if anything needs to be learnt from HKG it's not to funnel three satellites (midfield, north satellite, gates 40-80 of main terminal) of arriving passengers through one point.

Seletar Airport station is also a matter of when, not if to me - when the new PTB opens (this year?) and they start scheduled flights, do they expect passengers flying through XSP to pile onto 103 and 117 with all their luggage along with the Seletar Aerospace Park crowds?

Ok, maybe a Punggol West station west of the LRT might work too.
