our street is residential with many young families, pets etc. it is also the first street that gives access to the northern end of Point Chevalier. With the work on the waterview connection and St Luke's motorway, great North Road is becoming more and more congested during rush hour. So the number of vehicles using Riro Street as a cut through has now increased to a dangerous level. I can only see this issue becoming worse as the traffic volume increases when these connections are completed. The street also has a blind corner which many treat as a racing challenge. This combined with the fact that everyone is in a rush either to or from work, means it is only a matter time before there is a serious accident. What is the process for getting the council to look into this properly, ideally with a view to installing measures which either deter people using the road as a cut through or at least slow them down when they do?
