You could try linking the Queen Street Hill section with the plan to calm Aberdeen which is being led by Councillor Aidan Johnson: they have similar issues of high speed traffic and no buffers. Unfortunately, Councillor Whitehead strongly opposed any suggestion of traffic calming on Aberdeen and that has slowed the whole process down.

It is too bad that no efforts to calm traffic and provide a buffer for pedestrians were included when the Queen Street Hill road was rebuilt recently for $6 million! They could have included an up-bound cycle lane, or extended the sidewalks, for example.

Incidentally, before the bike lane on Charlton drivers would be annoyed (sometime honking) and not slow down when I tried to turn into my driveway on Charlton. The mentality was clearly that they don't expect anyone to actually live on these streets.
