The top loop looks like it will need quite a steep gradient to get over the bridge. Will your locos manage it or are you going to sink the lower track to make it less steep?
You've probably got it all sorted already, but I thought I'd mention it.

Fit the insulators on both rails at both ends. Connect this isolated section to the output of your Lenz reversal module, and the input to either the 'main line, or the controller output. I don't have any experience of the Lenz modules myself, but they should be simple enough to wire up....
whatlep said:On the lower "8", were the layout mine I'd have a cut-off track so I could run a train around that "8" while running another round the larger circuit simultaneously (i.e. two separate circuits with links between them).
A final thought. Do check whether your Lenz reversing loop units are capable of independent operation before finally deciding on multiple reversing loops. If, like LGB's product, when one is activated all units change at the same time, you could run into problems and/or end up using units unnecessarily.
