Abosolutely. One of my economics teachers at university used to say the first rule of economics is that if you ask two economists a question you will get three competing answers.

If you laid all the economists end to end starting at Euston, would they get to Birmingham before they reached a conclusion?

No chance of anything changing at Curzon St, it would require a redsign which would cost a fortune amd add even more time into the project. Bear in mind the route is goiing over the Derby and Cross City north lines, not under. I dont understand the shock of a single fleet, operationally it makes sense and it will do in terms of cash.

Yet from Water Orton to Duddeston it's lower than ground level (& presumably existing rail level), as there are retaining walls & a nearly 3km tunnel.
It doesn't start to get higher & over those lines until Saltley.
