Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Discussion

It isn't there anymore now though.
Seems like LTA might be planning to integrate the CGL into the TEL, taking over the EWL service. From this snippet from the recent contract award announcement for the North-South Corridor (NSC) in bold:

"Lum Chang Building Contractors Pte Ltd is an established construction company and has designed and constructed the DTL Bukit Panjang station and tunnels. Lum Chang is also currently involved in the TEL’s Addition and Alteration Works to the existing Tanah Merah Station and the extension of the existing East West Line MRT Viaducts connecting to the new East Coast Integrated Depot at Changi"

Do this indicate a future loop back to tanah merah station from Sungei Bedok via Changi T5 and existing Changi Airport station?
LTA just posted on their FB page of a station between Gardens by the Bay and Tanjong Rhu station. It's called Founder's Memorial Station, and located at where the previously predicted station under Gardens by the Bay East.

It is confirmed that the shall station is materialise as "Founders' Memorial" station.
What will be the station code of Founders' Memorial station? Will it be TE22A or TE23?

Because now it isn't too late to change the station codes of the stations from Tanjong Rhu to Sungei Bedok, so I'm wondering if they will use TE23 for the new infill station and add 1 to the numbers in the station codes for the stations after that.

Update: It's confirmed to be TE22A (although it may be subject to change before TEL4 opens in 2023).
First stage of TEL will open by end-Jan 2020.
What I can infer from today's announcement about the Thomson East Coast Line:

1. Why don't want release the exact date? Could be to add pressure on Malaysia, to make them give in to the Woodlands-Johor RTS Link. 

2. The emphasis on Japan Kawasaki and China CRRC in the CNA news article about today's news may give hint on the Jurong Region Line train tender.

3. The next General Election is after January. Probably in the month of May, where the 2011 and 2006 General Elections were held.
