As a resident near Queen North, I'm really tired of this ridiculous LRT excuse as a means of doing nothing to improve safety down here.

Queen South is loaded up with ladder crossings, pedestrian signals and now a new PXO. Queen North has NOTHING from Cannon to King. We've been asking for years for at least one crossing near Napier and continually have this lame 'LRT' excuse tossed back as a means to maintain the status quo.

Two-way conversion should happen all the way to Stuart. We're talking adding a yellow line of paint on the road. It will be faded and in need of repainting long before LRT opens. If they decide at that time to paint it white again, so be it.

LRT is slicing right through the middle of the lower city....very interesting to see how the poorer communities to the north are being treated with respect to road and traffic safety compared to the southern half of the lower city which is equally as close to the LRT line.
