I agree for the most part that King is the better location, particularly between Wentworth and Gage where it really works its way into the centre and comes close to the stadium. However, I worry that the trains are going to loom too large in the IV. It looks like that infrastructure will essentially consume the entire streetscape and pose a real problem if the tracks are shared with cars. We want to see the LRT passing cars in gridlock - not stuck alongside them. My preference would be for the LRT to by-pass the IV while at the same time widening the sidewalks and installing a parking protected bike lane on one side with no parking on the other.

Running the LRT a short distance on Main may also provide the incentive to convert at least that span to two way which would open up the possibility for further conversion in the future.
