Yeah, I guess fitting two rails on one lane is not possible. Darn laws of nature.

Even with one rail, I don't necessarily think it's not doable... it can't take more than a few minutes to cross the span, so frequencies could be every 5 minutes with properly timed trains.

I was also thinking about the medium-term goal to remove all traffic from the Lion's Gate Bridge and through Stanley Park.

Does anyone know the depth of Burrard inlet?

Does anyone know the feasibility of actually burying the roadway leading up to the Lion's Gate Bridge? A Big Dig kind of thing, turning the surface top into a linear park.

If there was a third crossing, what do you think would happen to the Lion's Gate? Revert to two lanes, plus a transit lane and wider cyclist and pedestrian lanes?
