What did the residents object to about the two-way conversion? Were they concerned about speeding and cut-through traffic or, conversely, worried that it would make it slower to drive to their residences?

Two-way conversion is usually good for local residents since it is a cost effective way of slowing traffic and makes it easier to get to destinations within the neighbourhood. However, as we saw with Bold and Duke, some residents (especially older residents) worry that it is more difficult to drive on two way streets (harder to make left turns), especially if the lanes are narrowed (which also slows traffic). Loss of street parking can also be an issue. Sometimes it is just a basic fear of change. Was the proposed two-way conversion going to reduce on-street parking?
