that was a chart of depth in the area, The IND crosses directly under the IRT, in fact cutting through the lower level tunnel south of Nevins Street, making that extra platform even more unusable.

The IND tracks stay together until after the pass Ashland Place, clearing both of the BMT lines passing underneath. Then the crosstown tracks can begin their drop to cross under the Manhattan bound Fulton line tracks.

If the junction is built with one track rising, that track would need to be back down to the original grade before it got to Flatbush ave. If built with one track dropping, well, it can't. It would slam into the Brighton tunnel under St. Felix street before it could make the climb back up.
