Queen Street isn't a red herring, it's exactly what the argument is about. Queen South is 1-way for the benefit of the West Mountain and nobody else - commuters from other areas would use the Linc or the Jolley Cut for similar trips. Locals would rather have a normal street.

Nobody is proposing that Queen South get a complete-street treatment with bike lanes and all that. Just the same normal form that every other street gets. I mean, look at Garth - it's not a really safe street, it's got fast traffic and minimal street-side parking. For Queen? That would still be a massive improvement!

Give Queen the same treatment as Garth. 2-way, rush-hour-prohibition on street-side parking, and normal traffic lights instead of crazy onramps.

Queen's an arterial road.

Fine.

Make it a normal arterial road instead of a freak.
