As I understand it, motorists won't be able to directly turn left across the tracks mid-block, but they can turn right into businesses (i.e. the traffic will essentially be one way because of not being able to cross the tracks except at intersections).

This is essentially the same issue we have already with all of the one way streets in Wards 1-3 of Hamilton where motorists must double back to reach shops on streets going the opposite direction they are travelling ... and Council seems quite happy to leave those streets one way! It is also standard design for separated LRT systems throughout the world not to allow traffic to turn across the tracks mid-block.
