|Candidate||Brief Response||Full Response|
|Farr, Laura||Yes||I have always and continue to support the conversions. The reasons for making the streets one way - many people going to and from the factory jobs in the east end - are no longer where people are going to and from anymore.|
|Kuruc, Ned||Maybe||I support the conversion to two-lane streets, as long as it fits into Hamilton's master transit plan.|
|Nann, Nrinder||Yes||Yes. There are more than 80 one-way streets in the city. Conversions to two-way streets will calm traffic, reduce side-street cut-throughs, and help us move towards complete streets, where streets are accessible to all users and safe for pedestrians.
Plus, the conversion to two-way streets has been part of a long-delayed update to the 2007 transportation master plan.
It's time we implement the plan we created more than a decade ago.
|Smith, Dan||Yes||I think conversion to two way would help as it tends to slow traffic a bit. Speed is a main reason why accidents happen.|
|Sprague, Kristeen||No||I think we need to consider improving the road surfaces before we consider converting more streets to two-way streets.|
