Maybe two-way on King is the way to go. But, out of curiosity, I wonder what factor is more important in making a main thoroughfare, like King Street (or Main, for that matter) a more liveable, pedestrian-friendly milieu: light rail or two-way traffic flow?

In other words, would the end result be better with a two-way street devoid of light rail, or a one-way street with light rail? Are there any other cities in the world with one-way light rail lines along major streets, and what has that experience been?

And I am thinking that perhaps the volumes of traffic on an east-west LRT system/line in Hamilton may build to such a level that over the long term perhaps double track routes on both King and Main may be appropriate and necessary.
