1) An additional pedestrian crossing is required across Harris Rd, somewhere between Smales and Ti Rakau. This 2km stretch of 4-lane highway has nowhere to safely cross the road.
2) Traffic regularly backs up on Neales Rd trying to turn onto Harris rd. It is overflow from the heavily congested Smales/Harris intersection.
3) A decent controlled intersection here would help both these problems. ie. ease congestion at Smales/Harris, and provide a safe pedestrian crossing across Harris Rd.
** An alternative location for additional traffic lights/ped crossing would be cnr Crooks/Harris Rd.
