Honestly, I think there'd be very little resistance to converting all the streets interior to Durand and Kirkendall to two-way... the people driving through Hamilton aren't ducking into Charlton or anything like that.

Probably the only reason it hasn't happened already is the cost of conversion. I've been meaning to actually do a street-by-street check to see which ones don't have any traffic lights... after all, if a street has no lights against it, then the total cost of conversion is lines and signs. I doubt there would be much resistence in getting all those "low-hanging fruit" converted.

I tried to see if I could do it automatically, but unfortunately OpenStreetMap's inventory of Hamilton's traffic lights is incomplete, and traffic lights aren't part of Hamilton's open data sets.
