Hamilton's Ring Road is a joke. One half of the ring is a choked-up expressway that is on the far side of a lake, and the other half is a parkway that is on the other side of a massive cliff that only has a half dozen overcrowded cuts to get down. And our city is very long and slim.

I'll be happy to eat my hat after LRT takes off and Hamilton sees a downtown boom along King street and then the city embraces public transit and we get good enough coverage to return Cannon and Main to a 2-way state. But until then, I support the city's plan of keeping Cannon and Main as a single 1-way corridor across the lower city.


I work in northeast end of the city and I drive on Burlington street, and I'm always bewildered by coworkers that keep going past the old brewery at Wellington (or is it Wentworth). If you turn left there you get a one-way path right to Cannon where you can keep going west instead of slogging through two-way residential neighborhoods.
