Test run?

Before the permanent closure of the CBD roads to all traffic, that is the plan of TCC Traffic Department as the end game here. This has to be looked upon as a test run to see what happens. Cant see that a bit of tinkering (called improvements) requires 50 hours of nocturnal indulgence to perhaps touch up a bit of paint?
