I am currently constructing a house at 294 Kitchener Rd. The part of Kitchener Road, from the intersection with Greenlane westwards has an open speed limit and traffic speeds up rapidly over the brow of the hill and then can find a vehicle is stopped waiting to turn right into Rowles road and the road is blocked.I have seen many near misses recently. Also this is now a residential area with lots of driveways feeding on to Kitchener road which don't have long distances of clear sight. The traffic is traveling too fast for people to exit their driveways safely. Also there are quite a few pedestrians using the roadside who are at risk of being hit by vehicles trying to avoid a collision. The restricted speed limit of 50kms need extending all the way along Kitchener Rd and maybe as far as the Blake Rd, Foy Rd intersection.Kitchener road is busy and this will only increase with the number of new houses soon to be constructed in the immediate vicinity.
