North East Line (NEL) Discussion
Yes. It is
Smile  Thks!
The NEL puzzles me... 1500V DC OHL....  PGL overrun.... Tunnel being different between NE4 and NE3... NE2's location.... Turbines...

I would really want answers to the mysteries of NEL

Overhead Line Equipment (OHLE) was probably (in my opinion) a 'trial' by LTA to see its convenience and feasibility. Notice that NEL is the only MRT line to have OHLE, and lines built after NEL do not have.

Punggol overrun, I don't really know what's up about it? Other than, it's quite common to see overrun sidings at terminal stations.

There are different tunnel types, one built using Cut and Cover, and another built using the Tunnel Boring Machine.
I don't travel on NEL a lot, so I can't quite answer your doubts on the tunnel differences.

Turbines are installed in tunnels to (from what I remembered) ensure fresh air blowing towards passengers' faces in the event of an emergency, like a train fire.

Fresh air will be blown towards passengers' faces, and hot smoke blown away from them. So to ensure safety in that sense.

When is the next SKD open house?

There is no open house due to security reason.
Where do you think NE2 is?

Where do you think, then?  Wink

If you get on board a NEL train and stand at the viewing space, try to look out for a straight track running for some 100+ metres. That is the approximate location of the future station. 

That being said, we do not know if LTA will actually really commit to building this station. For all you know, LTA may not even want to build it at all and just renumber all the stations accordingly.

Anyone knows when will NEL upgrade their signalling system to Urballis 400?

Thank You.

Hi welcome to SGTrains! I see that you are new here and maybe just a note, you can post your NEL-related questions in the North East Line thread here or in the Questions about MRT/LRT thread here

The signalling system upgrade will not happen soon. Probably,  it may be done concurrently with the mid-life refurbishment of the C751A trains. As a good gauge, the mid-life refurbishment of the NEL should be done anytime between 2022 to 2026, supposing it takes about three to four years to upgrade all infrastructure and assets.
