The only corridor where a Light Rail B-Line could work would be Main St./Queeston. King St is too Narrow as you enter the core (Traffic there is constantly congested as is). Barton St. is in ill repair and cuts off at Dundurn castle, Cannon St. turns into Britannia and then stops at the Red Hill pointing at a park and a cemetery.

Once again, I will say Light Rail is a great idea for Hamilton in 25 years or so, but not now. There isn't enough density yet in the city to justify either it's startup costs or it's ongoing maintenance. There are just too few people living over such a wide area. It's putting the carriage ahead of the horse. LRT is meant to compliment existing density not spontaneously create it. I'm sure my opinions differ with many of this site, but that's just my way of looking at it.
