Yeah, I don't think it's easily possible, the line is 2 tracks on enbankment, but then you have the needed slope downwards on either side to allow for drainage, etc. While technically space-wise there may be enough room, you couldn't do it without concreting flat sides all along the enbankment, and that would probably be an eyesore. You would lose the tree buffer on either side of the enbankment, and NIMBYs would never go for that.
