The day the new motorway opened up the traffic along Halswell Junction Rd increased 500%. It is now near impossible for cars to turn right out of Edmonton Rd and many are turning left then doing a uturn at the neighbouring truck place just to turn right. As this is predominately an industrial area the problem is exaggerated by the number of trucks that can't turn and traffic is often backed up down Edmonton Rd with people unable to turn and those that can are going left first. Another accident at the corner today no doubt caused by frustration and taking too small a gap. Someone will get hurt. If they haven't already been. The new give way rule hasn't helped the situation I know the traffic volume may be temporary till the new motorway extension opens but it can't carry on as it is for that many years.
