One other point is that although Jill Stephen publicly justified abandoning the two-way conversion of Main on the grounds that traffic still has to travel east (which was always a strange justification), in the RTCAC group meetings she said that the decision was primarily a political tactic. She said that LRT was controversial enough, and she didn't want the divisive two-way conversion debate mixed up with it (despite the recommendation of Metrolinx that it would help LRT be successful). I don't think she really thought there were good traffic engineering reasons to keep Main one way.

As Jason Leach has pointed out, two way conversion will really be essential during the construction phase when King will have "difficult" traffic (as they described it in Grenoble during the recent LRT construction).

Why would they not want to add additional westbound lanes during this period?
