This corner identified in the map has extremely limited vision and has been the subject of a number of crashes and near misses in recent times including a crash last week, not to mention an innumerable loss of wing mirrors. For Traffic coming from the city there are a number of "s bends" culminating in a left hand bend with no visibility of oncoming traffic. This is exacerbated when driving north with cars parked on both sides of the road reducing the lane available. The position is further compromised by buses, and a bus stop outside no 18 Sylvan Ave At speed, or with a bus stopping, residents exiting or turning into their driveways, there is no where to go to avoid a crash. The road is also used as a feeder onto the motorway in the morning, leading to city bound traffic queuing and further reducing the available road. Visibility while exiting properties adjacent to the corner in Sylvan Ave at best compromises those properties, and is considered extremely dangerous. I would ask that this be reviewed to explore what options might be appropriate to mitigate what is considered to be a high risk situation. There are other issues which need to be considered and I would suggest that an inspection be carried out on site, with interested parties.
