The DNA is working with the City on a new wave of improvements for pedestrians, which will involve traffic calming and more pedestrian crossing points. The DNA also strongly supports 2-way conversion. One possibility under study by the City is a paired two-way conversion of Bay and Queen. Charlton will also see a cycle lane, which will provide an additional buffer for pedstrians as well as improving conditions for cyclists.

The participatory budget process approved a pedestrian operated traffic light at MacNab and Hunter, adjacent to the YWCA and the pedstrian underpass.

I'm not sure that there is more recent data, but overall declining traffic volumes in the lower city suggest that top speeds could be even higher. Certainly, pedestrian injuries and deaths have not declined in Hamilton.

I believe there was an effort to use new aerial observation technology to get a better picture of overall traffic volume and speeds in Wards 1 and 2.
