Shifting to a 30km/h limit would only really help if it was accompanied by street redesign, like two way conversion, bump-outs, chicanes etc. and applied to the whole neighbourhood (apart, possibly, from a very few arterial streets).

This is what has been done in the North End.

Also, if the streets were left one-way it would still make it more difficult to navigate the streets for visitors, residents and (especially cyclists). That is one reason why two-way streets are now recognized as more efficient in downtown areas:

It would also be more effective if it became the default speed limit in urban areas of the city, not just in a few neighbourhoods.
