I walked near the TEL construction site in Marina East tonight and works are going on at full steam - there's a whole lotta drilling, hammering, and whatnot. I wonder how they're going to tunnel across the Marina Channel. Will they tunnel straight through it with a TBM or will they set up temporary platforms on the water and divert the flow of water like what was done during the construction of the MCE?

Singapore LTA awards first TEL East Coast civil works contract
Friday, November 20, 2015



SINGAPORE Land Transport Authority has awarded the first contract civil works on the East Coast section of the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) to Samsung C&T, which will construct Marine Parade station and associated tunnels in a deal worth around $S 555m ($US 394m)

The 13km East Coast section of the TEL will link Sungai Bedok in the east with Tanjong Rhu in the west, connecting an area of the island which is not currently connected to the rail network with the city centre. The section will have nine stations, including an interchange with the Downtown Line at Sungei Bedok

For faregates, I think everyone should just wait until the opening on 27 Dec, to see how the faregates perform. The faregates for the DTL2 stations are newer and quite likely different from those in DTL1.

For Rochor/Jalan Besar, the main issue is the shophouses between the 2 stations, and Sim Lim Tower on the other side. The best solution is to safeguard an unpaid link between the 2 stations, to be built by the developer in the event that Sim Lim Tower is acquired and redevloped. To make the connection, either URA can give the underground space rights to the developer on the condition that they will construct the linkways to JLB and RCR and install travellators, or require the developer to build an under public linkway below Jalan Besar with knock-off panels on both ends where LTA can build the connections accordingly.

It was not possible to have an integrated interchange at Rochor/Jalan Besar due to many factors, including the presence of NSE, Rochor Canal, Sim Lim Tower, Sim Lim Square and Albert Complex all at the junction. It would have been possible if there is no NSE to consider, or NSE is elevated at that location, but doing so will have its own problems particularly near Raffles Hospital.
