Parking on main arteries in downtown Halifax

Posted on Thu, Dec 22, 2011 at 11:31 AM

So city planners make more sections of streets in downtown Halifax one-way, so traffic flows more smoothly... in theory. Yet with years of observations to draw on from Hollis Street, say, where two theoretical lanes are often just one, nobody has the balls to disallow parking on Water Street? Just a couple of months of evening rush hour, with the latest system, make it abundantly clear that for almost all of Water Street there is only ONE lane of traffic, and that's entirely because of people parked on the west side of that street, for the entire working day, pretty much for the whole length of it. So what improved exactly? Try precisely nothing. Maybe it's just me, but do the city staffers who propose these changes actually follow up to see what happens? I knew we were in some trouble, but if this is the calibre of our paid help, well... —What Was the Point?
