This anecdote carries little weight because I drive only occasionally, but I did drive down King this month on a Friday at 9:30AM, in order to bring a cat to the vet.

When the light turned green at King and James, literally, I and most of that platoon got on the 403 without stopping again, hitting the gas only slightly to get through the flashing hand at Dundurn. The flow of cars reached the ramp doing a comfortable 65kph, as two people stood waiting to cross. On this particular run, the 403 on ramp effectively began at King and James (acknowledging that it's after the IV bottleneck).

It was a delightful drive. A yellow brick road straight out of town. I don't recall being able to cruise like that through anywhere else. Other than the rush hour flash flood once or twice a day - exactly when you want an HOV solution because it's gonna be busy anyway - there seemed to be a lot of room on that road.
