Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Discussion
Since there was such a huge discussion about Thomson Line, I decided to start a thread each for Thomson Line & Eastern Region Line for discussion.

Here are some technical information, which are subject to changes*
  • 4 Car Formation

  • Depot at Mandai (Part of Orchidville)

  • Depot At Ground Level (Similar to Bishan Depot & Gali Batu)

  • Thomson Line will Interchange with NSL Woodlands Station

  • Thomson Line will have an interchange with a/extension line which will go into JB Sentral at Woodlands North

  • Most Probably Powered By 3rd Rail

  • Eastern Region Line and Thomson Line are to run as one Line.

  • Communication System by ST Electronics

  • PSDs and Signalling by GE Transportation   Alstom 
  • 5 Doors on each side of the car, instead of the current 4
  • Operator: SMRT Trains Ltd

You are free to use your imagination to predict any constructive technical info.

It will have a station at Woodlands to interchange with NSL then another station near Republic Poly to go into JB Sentral

It's most likely a seperate line from Thomson Line to go into Malaysia...
Barely active here.

Since Not Much Information about the eastern Region Line has been released i can only base on this for prediction

[Image: road&rail.jpg]

It is from the URA website so my guess is that the ERL will be running along places very near to the East coast park, and terminates at Changi Village?

Your views, your discussion people Big Grin

Yes it could be, but we also cannot rule out that it might also be an extension branch line like CGL...

My Speculation.

ER1/TS23 Gardens By The Bay
ER2 Tanjong Rhu
ER3 Meyer
ER4 Tanjong Katong
ER5 Marine Parade
ER6 East Coast
ER7 Telok Kurau
ER8 Siglap
ER9 Bayshore
ER10 Eastwood
ER11 Changi Coast - For golfers at TNM Country Club
ER12 Singapore Motorsport Hub*


I predict its terminus is at the vicinity of Chagi Ferry Terminal and the location of future Singapore Grand Prix that will be built at that area.
Maybe ERL can Interchange with CGA?
The news keep on speculating that the Thomson Line goes to JB... and if this is true, then the KTB service no need to operate here anymore.
