I live on the corner of Coronation and Awahuri Rd, my husband and I often sit on the deck outside and witness many near misses by passing vehicles. Consequently last Thursday evening there was an accident on the corner of West Street, South Street and Awahuri Road. This intersection needs to be changed as its very dangerous and the near misses are many, to say the least. My friends and family that visit always comment on how confusing the layout is. Ideally a roundabout needs to be put in place however, trucks would not be able to get around. Many of us living around here believe that the Give Way sign on West Street leading onto Awahuri, needs to be a STOP sign. Also signs should be put up for vehicles going up Awahuri Street and turning either onto South Street or veering onto West Street should say "PLEASE INDICATE BOTH WAYS". Believe me, many dont indicate and the near misses we see is disturbing. Can you please advise what is to be done about this dangerous intersection. Thank you.
