Bidirectional center turn lanes are notoriously wide in Hamilton.
They tend to be over 10 feet wide (>3m wide).

On the newly painted Cannon bike lanes painted past Gage Park, the bike lanes narrow from ~55" to only ~47" to accomodate a 125" wide center turning lane that really don't need to be that wide.

Even 2.9 meter is still wider than a non-bidrectional turning lane on Barton Ave. Can't Public Works narrow center turning lanes a smidgen? It would result in fewer total deaths. (cars+bikes+pedestrians)
