I think Main is the preferable option, but I think that revitalization is a double-edged sword. Assuming that a King route took the day, considering how hand-to-mouth many businesses along King from the CBD to the Delta seem to be, it's a fair question whether many would survive long enough to see the benefits of LRT. I would further wager that that the disruption of line construction would substantially thin out the ranks of those businesses that make it that long. And I imagine, given plans to pedestrianize Gore and street widths from Mary to Wellington, that a King line would make James to Wellington largely pedestrian-only. A bold experiment, no doubt, but hopefully one that would be undertaken after sober consideration and public dialogue.
