While the list of all truck routes does remain staggering, it is important ot note there is a significant reduction in truck routes buried in this proposal. There are 25 routes being removed, which will reduce the overall mileage of Hamilton truck routes by roughly 85 km.

While it is glaringly obvious of a missed opportunity to remove Main Street from the truck route list, in the silver lining department, a significant stretch of Barton in the core has been removed.

It now becomes clear why Main Street has never been considered for the LRT route, seeing as the city intends to reserve it indefinitely as a truck route. It is unfortunate there was no concerted effort to give Main fair consideration for the LRT route as that would have also achieved in ridding Main of trucks and making it a pedestrian friendly street. Unfortunately this city is riddled with missed opportunities and Main is destined to remain a throughway.
