Dont forget even though William is 1 lane each way Beaufort will be 2 each way so you have only lost one lane each way as well as this many streets are becoming two way wich will help traffic flow. It is no way a hole dug just give it time...
Re going 2way, keep in mind as William street becomes two way, the traffic turning right into Newcastle, Aberdeen, James and Roe will have to wait for pedestrians to cross whilst the signal is green. As a result something similar to St. Georges Terrace and William. Sometimes only allowing 2-4 vehicles through.
The city how it used to be, EL Falcon Taxi's, DAB's, the old City Beach Bus Stop outside Raine Square, the old King Kong Shop at the corner of William and Murray (where the underground now stands), the old Bus Lane on to the freeway from the Busport onto the freeway! Some really good memories there HFB. Cheers
What would be interesting is to have some pictures dating back 40,50,60 years or more.Same as the pictures posted with maybe trams or trolleybuses in them as old picture are good at comparing a city at what it looks like then and into future.
