thus restoring "right side of the road" orientation.
What doesn't make sense to me is that they would go to the expense of a basketweave flyover for one movement
involving a bidirectional traffic on the 3rd platform when there are level crossings east of the station that allow use
of the existing centre platform and switching to access the Coquitlam line.
This was my guess at the possible train movements from a few years ago:
BTW - one key point to note is that during construction of Lougheed station an "X" switch east of the station
was replaced with two "Y" switches to perform the same movements. The original plan for an "X" switch provides
insight as to the planned movements.
