draft Urban Design Framework - further issues at Waterfront Place

The tram stop: Anyone returning home on the 109 would know this scenario - do you get off on the north side of Beach St and save about 1 minute, or do you wait until the city bound tram has left the tram stop and arrive comfortably at the terminus? People getting off the tram cross the path of north/south cyclists heading to and from the Bay trail in rush hour hurry. These issues are compounded when cruise ships are in. At some point in the future, it will likely be necessary to enable the trams to pass each other at the terminus, and to improve the interaction place between cyclists and tram passengers through a more spacious design. By the way, do you know you can follow tram 109 on twitter @tram109? I enjoy the voice of @tram109.
