It seems to me that a lot of the opposition to two-way traffic on Main and King would go away if there were another reasonable way to get from east of downtown to west of downtown or the other way around in a car. Notice that I didn't say "to 'bypass' downtown". People are concerned that the two way streets would create a bottleneck even worse then that which now exists between Victoria and James on King St. If Cannon and Wilson Sts. could remain one-way that would provide motorists with an east-west route, and the proposed LRT the two way traffic and revised streetscape which it ideally requires. It's well to remember that most Hamiltonians don't live anywhere near the proposed LRT line. Even if one of its stops is somewhere near where they're going, they're not going to endure the walk to a bus stop, the wait for the bus and a 20 or 30 minute bus ride to connect with it.
