I am thinking in terms of a more immediate solution to the problem of bus congestion and the exclusion of traffic from College Green, etc. Apart from all the furore about closing off streets, which would die away in time, and the physical hardship of closing streets and repainting lines, and altering the street furniture, Such a scheme could be brought in in under a year if the WILL was there. In the current climate of post boom and cutbacks in public finances, the gains from reorganising the one way streets and the buses would cost far less, and provide some level of interim solution, rather than expensive long term plans which may or may not ever happen, because we might need the money for something else.
Bus tunnels would take years to plan and execute, and in any case, if we could build tunnels for buses, we might as well put faster and more capacious Metro trains in.
