Tampines Central update

Tampines town will see 3 new MRT stations with the Downtown Line 3 (DTL3) threading through the estate. One will serve the east district, another the west district and the third the town centre with the existing East-West Line (EWL) station forming an interchange. Although the final name reflected for this station is "Tampines", for the purpose of ease of identification during the tender and construction processes, the station is referred to as Tampines Central (avoiding confusion with Tampines East & Tampines West stations). This also stems from the fact that although an interchange station with the EWL, the DTL station is an entirely separate stand-alone facility with no paid links to the existing station. With the emergence of such interchanges (others being Bukit Panjang and Newton stations), the fare structure will definitely see a revamp prior to the operation of these stations. Here's a look at how Tampines Central station has progressed over time.
