Something needs to be done at this intersection, and sooner rather than later. It is virtually impossible to turn right into the Ellerslie-Panmure Highway from Harrison Road during rush hour(s) without causing some need misses. Even during normal traffic flow it can be a challenge. There are a huge number of residence, both high rise apartment and tightly packed single dwellings living on this street. You also have St Johns Headquarters, Mount Wellington Police Headquarters and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, plus, a number of other smaller commercial entities. There is excessive traffic flow for this dead end street. There is only one way out. With the Summerset Rest Home now close to completion there will now be the addition of senior citizens trying to negotiate this turn as well. Their reactions will be a little slower than us younger ones who are brave enough to take on the medium strip with traffic rushing past in both directions. We need to either have a roundabout or some traffic lights at this intersection. There is a pedestrian only traffic light crossing around 300m away towards Alana Place. Perhaps this could be moved to the Harrison Road intersection where it would serve better value. The fixed speed camera mounted does slow the traffic down but its not enough. We need some action before someone gets killed!
