Repeating the obvious, but (as one who was familiar with that area when living in Hamilton not too long ago) its just another example of a 'cars first' mentality that has despoiled so many cities, including Hamilton, starting in the 1950s. Of course, Hamilton is pretty bad in many ways - chain link fencing to prevent easy pedestrian access across streets and to other parts of neighbourhoods is not in the least impressive - but one can always find worse examples, like Detroit.

But, in my view, nothing beats that overhead stretch of Burlington for sheer ugliness and pedestrian-unfriendly planning in Hamilton. Even the 403 at least has stretches of grass and shrubbery along it.
