That actually raises an interesting question: what are they using for electrification? Will boarding be low or high? My assumptions would be catenary and low boarding.

As for the RoW separation, I still think if they just single-track through the tunnel under the cemetery, they'll be fine.

Light rail has far too low capacity for this project.

Technically the final mode hasn't been chosen, but it appears that the options in the running are low boarding LRV or BRT. Presumably overhead wiring.

Thus the complaints about low vehicular capacity and infrequent headways.
