I think the issue is that large semi-trailer trucks still routinely use Main Street through downtown Hamilton as a shortcut between the 403 and the QEW-Niagara despite the fact a ring road freeway system was completed around Hamilton in 2007.

Indeed, many residents still cut across downtown to get to Stoney Creek from West Hamilton rather than taking 403-Linc-RHVP. The five lane one-way design with lights timed close to 60 km/h make this an attractive option.

Some of the opposition to LRT is related to fears that it will make it difficult to use the lower city of Hamilton as a shortcut.
