you're right on all counts. We need to wait for the real info instead of the partial info from an opinion columnist simply trying to drive readers.

A legit reporter will have some basic facts researched and inform readers of info such as the current set-up which forces all cars to only turn in one direction when entering Main and King St. In other words, a non-issue that all Hamilton drivers are used to with our plethora of one-way streets. In fact, if King and Main go two-way, drivers will have full access in either direction on Main and have 2-way access at all signalized intersections on King. Similar to York Blvd currently.

I suspect once the full and correct info comes out in May, staff will be sure to inform citizens that they will gain all kinds of new access with 2-way Main, as well as show them the city data which shows Main carrying 50% of it's capacity, meaning the street is essentially half empty. Logic tells us to turn it 2-way and put that empty 50% to good use for motorists.

The lame clickbait opinion pieces published so far by the Spec are good reminders as to why I dropped my subscription many years ago. Looking forward to the official release from Metrolinx/City Hall in May
