Wow...very interesting to hear your views as someone who is there all the time. I would like to think that transit riders will learn where to wait as to not impede with the bike lanes....Hamilton just built their first bike hump lane entering Westdale. But as for the rest of your points - very interesting info indeed. I do like all the new trees in proper soil channels, and not just crammed into little sidewalk holes like we do here. I'm also quite jealous of Toronto and their right of way for streetcars. I would love to see that in Hamilton, but we tore them up years ago. Sometimes a 'renovation' of a street can actually set the place back. I wonder if local businesses share your concerns. Less parking would be a real problem. I've long said that Hamilton needs to add 24-7 curb parking on both sides of King, Main, Cannon, Wilson immediately for the sake of giving any prospective business owners a chance. Right now, they are car-only freeways which kills any business hopes.
