Over two years ago the Wards 1 and 2 councillors sponsored a resident-led survey of Queen Street to identify any issues that might arise in converting it to 2-way. This was in response to council pushback on various inclusive streets initiatives in the wards:

It would be great to include this work in the Aberdeen request so we look at the streets as a network, rather than piecemeal. The fact that it is now 2.5 years since this work (and even longer since the original councillor-led attempts) should allay any council fears that we are "moving too fast"!

As mentioned before, Bay/Queen are treated as a pair, and Bay south of Main has a speeding problem and is way under capacity (and runs by a primary school) that it should also be folded into the study.

This would provide a lot more options for drivers as well as making better use of road allowance on these three under-capacity streets.

It also aligns with many of the City's official goals (best place to raise a child, encourage active transportation including walking and cycling). (And, note, there is no official City goal to encourage more driving and speeding!)
