Just some screen shot to provide better detail on point 10...
Ok, today LTA released its TSL Mainline Package B on the tender site. More information for you all :
As you know from previous Mainline package A(4.2km) it consists of 3 stations and a depot (1 interchange, 2-non CD station)---> As you all know i uploaded the indicative track alignment.(Check previous post)
So, lets get back to the point. This Mainline Package B consists of 8 stations:
From the tender document : (Mainline Package B 14.5km)
T4: Future Station (Note: It means stations that are not going to be built. Instead a station box will be placed for the future)
T4A: Future station (Why is the code T4A? I have no idea)
T5: CD station
T6: CD station
T7: Interchange + CD (This station will interchange with a future line, so this station will be just a normal CD station initially) ---> Interchange will be cross platform.
T8: Normal station
T9: Interchange (This station will interchange with an existing line) --->Interchange will be using paid to paid link
T10: Future station
This time round LTA did not provide the indicative track alignment. All I know is that this part B of TSL is about 14.5km.
So today LTA released the Mainline Package C from T11 to T16 (excludes T12)
(In total there are 4 packages. 3 of them have been released. Check previous posts for packages A and B)
Details of Package C (6 km)
T11: Interchange + CD
T13: Normal Station
T14: Interchange + CD
T15: Normal Station
T16: Normal Station
Notes: T12 will be designed by LTA In-house Design Team. Thus it is not included above.
A/E shall pay attention to design of station T13 and T14 to avoid cutting trees. (Stated in Tender Doc.)
Package C from T11 to T16 is 6km.(Track Alignment not given)
