Recently we came across Ramboll's website which showcased a passenger simulation they had done as a case study. The project was for the Cross Island Line (CRL), presumably Package B of the eastern leg. Some of the details provided were similar to that provided by another company which had also done a passenger traffic simulation study for Punggol station - VertixAP. Along with the case study was a short video showing perspectives of the station.

CPE: First look at the stations

Footprints & renders of the Cross Island Line Punggol Extension stations.

The Chinese daily Zaobao has given us a better understanding of the station layouts and how they will look once 2031 comes around. The station footprints - essentially the outlines - can show where the entrances will be located and how long the stations stretch for. As mentioned in our post yesterday, the station outline for Elias station shows that it will be some distance away from the location of Elias Mall. However, the station will feature numerous subways connecting to entrances located nearer to the residential blocks and amenities in the area. Notably for Riviera, there is also some effort put in to ensure that the new station entrances are located closer to the existing LRT station, minimizing exposure of commuters to the weather elements and allowing for smoother connections.

Edited 12 March 2020 - LTA has updated with the official station footprints. We have updated our post to reflect these.
