How could a Sheffield city HS2 station like this be built at the Midland site?

How could a Sheffield city HS2 station like this be built at the Midland site without massive disruption?

Scores of Sheffield business and city leaders attended a special event to design a city centre railway station that looks amazing, makes a statement, acts as a marketing tool and creates wealth for the region, the Sheffield Star reported. Ideas from the event, held at the Millennium Galleries, are to be sent to HS2 ahead of public consultation on the phase two route closing on 9 March.

The government’s preference is for running Sheffield trains into the existing Midland station, but not “on a loop off a mainline through Doncaster”, as The Star claimed. Such trains would be unlikely “to be up to 400 metres long”, and the station would not have to be expanded to house them. Needless to say, if Midland station were to be extensively rebuilt and the Supertram diverted, the cost and disruption would be enormous.
