What about the interface between CRLe and the CCNR tunnels?

And I think 1006 might be regarding the Punggol branch - they might be wanting to firm up their plans for the branch before committing to the AE study.

C1006, which is for the CRLe Mainline Package B studies, was called yesterday.

"Advance Engineering Study for the Proposed Cross Island Line Eastern Leg (CRLe) from Sin Ming to Changi - Mainline Package B"

https://www.lta.gov.sg/apps/tender/

I wonder what this package will cover..

I'm guessing Elias/Lorong Halus to Hougang and the Punggol branch.

Package A is likely Changi East to Elias/Lorong Halus, and definitely including Changi Depot.

Package C is probably Hougang to Bright Hill.

I saw that too.

But it seems a bit close to Clementi, so I guess it would be either the JRL, or a cripple siding/maintenance facility for CRLw.

It's definitely related to CRL. Cripple siding likely, possibly with the interchange station between CRL and JRL too all in the vicinity of the location. It will be around 1.5km by track distance between Clementi and this station due to the curve, turning 135 deg from due north-south, to SE-NW.

I reckon there are 2 possible alignments for CRL along the Clementi west coast region. The u turn alignment is 1 possibility. along those SI rigs we have seen so far. The other is the shorter connection from Clementi station to Hong Leong garden landed estate.

Alternative alignments for DPC costs analyses are usually not studied and proposed until the AE consultancy comes on board. Significant changes between the first announcement and the coming on board of the AE Consultants is very usual, that's why the first announcement alignment is usually very rough. This happened for TEL stage 1-3 when the alignment switched from Stevens Road to Dalvey Estate, stopping at Napier & Orchard Boulevard instead of the more direct connection.

Is it possible that the direct route would be used for CRL, and the SERS site replaced with a MTR-esque landed development over a second JRL depot?

could both be used for CRL which the local CRL could stop at the additional station while Commuter Express and Limited Express CRL could just follow the direct route?

Entirely possible - the IND Culver Line in New York does this between 7th Avenue and Church Avenue stations.

But wouldn't it require nearly double the SI? And if the decision is taken to 4-track the CRL, stacking 2 tracks on each level of a double decker tunnel, then no need.

Contract Ref. C1008
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Services for Cross Island Line Eastern Leg (CRLe) Depot

LTA has called for the above CRL contract today. It seems like LTA is putting CRLe works ahead of CRLw.
