Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for recently painting improved road marking signage on the intersection of Rewi Street, Rock Isle Road and Beach Road in Torbay. Regrettably, this new road marking has created a dangerous road accident situation, in that vehicles travelling down Beach Road from the Torbay shops, wishing to proceed straight ahead into Rock Isle Road, ignore the road markings as they can not easily see them, and they run straight across the "Give-Way" road markings for Rewi Street residents. So you have a dangerous situation, where a car travelling on Rewi Street-when reaching close to the Give Way road markings, will easily be hit in the side by those vehicles entering (cutting across the markings) into Rock Isle Road. What is needed, is raised kerbing (traffic island) with arrowed signage, which will provide those drivers with better signage and clear direction when entering Rock Isle Road. Thank you. Sincerely Graham Forbes 18 Tui Street Torbay 09 928 30 45 Bns
