Is it time to convert one-way Richmond and Adelaide back to two-way streets?
Coun. Adam Vaughan thinks so, at least for the stretch in his ward from University Avenue west to Bathurst Street.
Don Valley Parkway motorists could still enjoy one-way travel on Richmond and Adelaide to get in and out of downtown, Vaughan said, acknowledging that changing that popular commuter route would “make a mess of things.”
But he thinks going to two-way on the western portion would make life easier for condo dwellers moving into the neighbourhood, and encourage cafés and stores to open along the once-industrial avenues.
In support of his quest, he’s handing out little buttons showing arrows pointing in both directions, with the words “two way.”
