For the design of this bridge, the MOE should consider the following: the crossing will be built on a rail beam fill out and then pushed over ways to limit the impact on railway operations, the crossing will have only 2 intermediate supports in the rail beam (the largest range to cross over the tracks will be approximately 70 m - no temporary support shall be established), the slenderness of the lower deck will be to limit the impact of urban development on access ramps, crossing structure shall not exceed 20 feet above the rails, so as to facilitate insertion of a discrete bridge in urban project, the bridge will be done in very limited and constrained by the railway environment and the work of buildings and public spaces of the urban project on either side of the bridge area.
