For a potential future CERN neutrino facility it is considered to extract a 100 GeV proton beam from the second long straight section in the SPS into the existing TT20 transfer line leading to the North Area. Two transfer line design options were developed simultaneously: early-branching from TT20 using existing, recuperated 'experimental area' DC dipoles and alternatively late-branching close to the target area, which requires superconducting magnets. This paper describes the feasibility of
