And what about Line 2 underground stretch? Because the 2 tracks will be in different tunnels and from what I understand the only interchange is at phoolbagan...
Rake siding option is there in New Town.

Thus sealdah can be called the only crossover in middle as hm and sector 5 are terminal stations. N-s has intelligently kept two crossovers in the central section one between maiden and Rabindra sadan and other central and mahatma gandhi road.

Here's the sorry state of Kolkata Metro Line-2's "new" Phoolbagan Ramp - thanks to the apathetic Indian Railways which got transferred a 74% stake in KMRC back in 2012

And vip bazar station work is starting now only (that too almost a year after the fish market stalls had agreed to move).
I had the idea underground stations takes 3 years or more but elevated ones takes less.
