Expo

Quote:

Aerial render of Expo station


Proposed interior layout render

Expo station was initially planned without a paid link connection to the Changi Airport Line station. However, it seems that as of late these initial plans have been altered.

Station buildings at street level.


Closer look.


Looking further down to the main station area.


Backfilling beneath the Changi Airport Line.


The paid link - made possible by taking back the underpass from the existing Expo station to Changi City Point. Some minor A&A work has started at the existing station with the removal of the rain protection awning at street level.

Tampines Central

Quote:

Aerial render showing the layout of the station.


A render of the station's signature cylindrical exit canopies.

The Tampines Central station is located away from the East West Line station with no paid links in place, similar to Bukit Panjang. The station will extend the East West Line station design element to its surface level exits.

A view of the two utility structures for the station as seen from the bus interchange.


A view of the Downtown Line station at street level with the East West Line station in the background.


Part of the signature roof canopy being assembled off site before being installed at the exit.

Tampines West

Quote:

A view of one of the entrances at street level.


A render of the station concourse showing the orange/yellow livery scheme.

The station is a sister-station to that of Tampines East bearing the same design in a different colour scheme. Provisions have been made for a further 2 exits to be built in future on the opposite side of the Tampines Avenue 1 and 4 intersection.

A peek into the station site shows many levels of struts which means that there is a lot more work to be done.


A deep pit lies where the future entrance will sit.


Apparently, excavation is still on going at the site. In contrast, most other DTL3 stations should be achieving basic structure completion this year. This is kind of appalling.

Bedok Reservoir


A view of one of the future entrances next to block 761.


The remainder of the station area which has no sign of any surface-level structure yet. From notices in the nearby HDB flats, the contractor is supposedly on the roof slab level.

Bedok North

Quote:

Like Tampines East and Tampines West, the entrance design is similar to that of Bedok Reservoir station.


Likewise, the station features a simple two-storey layout to serve the platform and concourse levels.

Unlike Bedok Reservoir however, this station will have 3 exits located along Bedok North Road. One of the Reception Tracks towards the depot and facility building branches off to the west of this station. The contractor for this station is also building Mattar and Bencoolen stations along the same stage of the Downtown Line.

The site of the future exit next to block 708.


Another entrance along Bedok North Road. Escalators have been installed under the green tarp.


Ventilation and cooling towers are visible at surface level with a big portion of the station being back-filled. The Temporary Staging Area for trackworks is in the background.

Kaki Bukit

Quote:

Render of the station entrance.

Unfortunately, there haven't been as many renders of this station made available online. I've seen another view which shows the concourse area of the station, however scanning it doesn't do justice to the render. Nonetheless, this station will have 2 exits and is built in a build-the-station-only contract by Chinese contractor CSEC.

Entrance structure at the exit next to Techview building.


Street level view of the above entrance.


Aerial view of the station box area. Backfilling work is progressing well.


Bus stop/taxi shelter/pick-up and drop-off point for the entrance in the render. The roofing of the linkway is already done.

Render of the station exit.

Similar to Kaki Bukit station, there is a lack of available renders for this station online. Nevertheless, it too has 2 exits on either side of the road, also similar to Kaki Bukit station.

A view of the entrance structure and utility towers at street level.


Backfilling work over the station box seems complete.

MacPherson

Quote:

Cross section render of the Circle Line platform with the Downtown Line side platforms at the lowest level.


A cross section render further showing the integration between both lines.

MacPherson is the only station on stage 3 to feature side platforms - a feature becoming more commonplace with the Downtown Line. Currently, the lift serving the Circle Line platform and concourse near exit A is closed for modification works to enable the lift to descend down to the Downtown Line platform towards Expo.

Overview of the MacPherson station site. The narrower area is the subway zone between the station concourse and the 2 new exits close to MacPherson estate. The wider area is the concourse and platform area.


Overview of the exit works near block 68.


Work on going at the other exit along Circuit Road. Escalators have yet to be installed here. The concrete slab seen will support these fittings in future.

With that most of stage 3 has been covered together with the earlier posts on Fort Canning to Geylang Bahru stations. Coverage of Mattar station may pop up some time soon, but we may not be as fortunate with Upper Changi station. Thanks for viewing.

Just curious, I've seen previous renderings of Fort Canning station where there are supposedly siding tracks on the outermost sides of the station (i.e. the tracks where trains stop at the station are sandwiched between the platform and the siding tracks).

I guess this plan has been abandoned some time for a simple island platform?

Mattar station is also supposed to have cripple sidings on either bound within the station structure. To my knowledge, this has not altered.

Additional news:

Quote:
ROAD REINSTATEMENT WORKS AT KALLANG BAHRU

To facilitate road reinstatement works along Kallang Bahru (between the junction of Lavender Street and Jalan Lembah Kallang), the city bound carriageway will be reinstated from Saturday, 05 September 2015, 06:00p.m to Sunday, 06 September 2015, 06:30a.m.

With the alignment works, the centre median at Jalan Lembah Kallang and Kallang Bahru will be closed. Motorists travelling from Jalan Lembah Kallang towards Lavender Street can either make a U-turn at the junction of Boon Keng Road and Kallang Bahru or turn left into Boon Keng Road and Bendemeer Road.

Please refer to the attached map for more details.

For the safety of the pedestrians and motorists, the adjacent lane and footpath will be temporarily closed during the work. Directional/informational signs will be displayed to inform motorists of the road realignment. Traffic controllers will also be stationed at key junctions to direct traffic. Motorists are reminded to drive carefully and follow the directional signs on display.

Similar to Bencoolen & Kaki Bukit areas, there will be a long-term road closure in the CBD.

Quote:
ROAD CLOSURE AT MCCALLUM STREET

To facilitate construction works, part of McCallum Street will be closed permanently from Sunday, 06 September 2015 to 4th Quarter 2016.

During the closure period, motorists travelling to Robinson Road from Shenton Way will be diverted to access via Maxwell Road. In addition, the stretch of McCallum Street in between OUE Downtown 2 and SGX Centre 2 will be converted into 2 ways traffic

Please refer to the attached map for more details.

Directional and information signage will be placed well in advance of the road closure to inform and guide the motorists. Motorists are encouraged to plan their journey ahead and exercise caution when approaching the affected areas.

Hillview MRT station and future MRT station in Hume.

From a booklet sent to my house, by the PAP, for Chua Chu Kang GRC,

page 8:

"A big boost coming your way is the Hillview MRT station. Road improvements along Upper Bukit Timah Road and Jalan Anak Bukit will also cut travel time. To make your journey more comfortable, covered linkways will connect schools, health care facilities and public amenities within the 400m radius of Bukit Gombak and Hillview MRT stations. Hillview Avenue will also have additional sheltered walkways."

".... Furthermore, an MRT station in Hume will be built as part of plans to develop the Old Bukit Timah Fire Station into a gateway to the Rail Corridor."

the future station in Hume is probably beyond 2020, probably also beyond 2030. This is a long-term plan. Nonetheless, here's a likely purpose of the future station in Hume.

from a speech made in the Parliament by the Transport Minister Mr Lui Tuck Yew (http://www.mot.gov.sg/News-Centre/Ne...11-March-2015/) on 11 March 2015,

Quote:
We have not even begun the process of constructing an actual station and we would not be able to do so for a while yet, as I will explain.

We made these provisions for what I call box stations, as part of our advanced network planning to allow us to add a new station to an underground line in future given URA’s long-term development plans, without the need to do additional excavation when we pull the trigger. To transform these provisions into a full-fledged station, and to run the station, however, are different things, and it will still incur substantial costs and can only be justified if there is sufficient ridership.

As I understand it, from the numbers that she mentioned in her cut, there are only about 1,500 dwelling units within a walking distance of 600m from the Hume box station. I know also URA has no plans to develop the immediate areas around the Hume box station in the short to medium term.

Until they do so, we really do not have sufficient ridership to justify that station. In the meantime, residents along Hillview and Hume roads are served by direct bus services to the DTL2 at Hillview and Beauty World stations.
