It's a difference of 7.9 km to 26 km going from Victoria and Burlington to Highway 6 (15 minute difference with no traffic), or 14 km versus 34 km (15 minutes difference with no traffic) going to the Linc/403 interchange.

It definitely is longer, but that 15 minute advantage could easily disappear if Hamilton had traffic levels and economic vitality of comparable cities of half a million. In other words, if the downtown were actually performing like an economically strong and dynamic downtown.

In any case, I was not thinking of trucks with origins/destinations in Hamilton, but trucks simply passing through for which the ring road system is perfectly adequate. Or motorists trying to get from Westdale/Dundas to Stoney Creek.
