-       Identifying opportunities to upgrade pre-existing corridor and quality of life of nearby communities.


-       Facing legal and economic agreements between all the involved stakeholders.


-       Mitigating noise and minimizing disruption on current routes during construction.


-       Handling major utilities relocations and engaging with companies and public.
