That's why this is just a file photo from a few years back when DTL, TSL and ERL were announced as the next set of lines to be built.

LTA never updates their information until it's officially released anyway.

As for ERL, LTA mentioned that the soil investigations begin long ago, did everyone miss it in the pursuit of TSL? :p

2nd phase of S.I. started. Who wants to cycle at ECP? :P
And no more Hougang style stations.

One of our members have visited the area, there are no SIs, apparently.

I always though Hougang/Kovan style stations were a security loophole anyways.

Clause 2.3.3 is going to cause some headaches for architects trying to design good-looking stations methinks.

No bypassing of the security station. Then what about the faregates that lead directly to the elevators for the East-West Line platforms at Outram Park and Paya Lebar? :/

Either they are stepping up security or it's merely a clause they inserted for the sake of it. Those security stations are useless in practice anyway. ERL is also near the east coast and LTA or MINDEF may be implementing lessons learnt from the Mumbai attacks.

Thanks. This means most likely the consultants have reached tender documentation stage.

Erm, it's alright. Just means that the consultants are finalizing everything in preparation for tender that's it. As for exactly what they are doing for this stage i guess that you do not need to know, for now

I believe it's a just-in-case measure should there be another credible security threat. They can't do anything about the current bypasses, so should the need arise, they will set up a security station there too. Hence, they are trying to prevent any other bypasses so that the security station doesn't need to be duplicated in too many places.

LTA has not announced the death of the worker at one of the TWE stations. Their accident free scheme is just a public relations act.

Do you really believe that LTA are not interested in minimizing the risk of accidents and maximizing worker safety? You really think all these safety rules are just for show and unrelated to actual safety?

ERL stations will have side and island platforms like TSL...so I am assuming that they more resembles the TSL stations.

Pardon me, but I don't think this has anything to do with safety rules.

Companies can pledge "zero accidents" and pretend to care for their citizens, maybe the bosses at the sites do have an emotional connection to the employees and projects, but I highly doubt the higher ups in LTA see it as more than a name.

"Behavior-based Safety Program" What on earth is that?

I expect some or all of these "higher ups" are wondering if they could have done anything differently that would have avoided the loss of life.

This means discouraging risky behaviours at the job site.
