End-December update

Soil Investigations (SIs) seem to have intensified along the probable Eastern Region Line (ERL) alignment recently. Boreholes and rigs have been spotted at multiple locations along the corridor and may help to determine where the line runs and locations of the stations. In previous updates, we found that boreholes are noticed at Marine Parade, Marine Terrace, Siglap, Bayshore, Upper East Coast near Temasek Secondary School and at Bedok Corner. Today, we cover these areas again and provide a little more information.

Early December update

Just a quick and short update for the first part of the month. Soil Investigations have seemed to move out of the Marina East Gardens and are now out in full force along Tanjong Rhu. There are at least 5 machines in operation between the East Gardens and the first condo near Tanjong Rhu View I believe. Another 2 machines sit in front of a condo on the other end of Tanjong Rhu near the KPE.
