THINGS TO DO

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

ON read­ing the re­port in last week’s edi­tion head­lined “Up­grades to im­prove danger­ous in­ter­sec­tion”, I see a long list of things to be done.

How­ever, I don't see any men­tion of right-turn ar­rows on each of the re­main­ing three legs: south­bound on Hill View Ter­race is the only lane en­joy­ing that priv­i­lege.

If the right-turn ar­rows are not pro­vided, then all the other works will be just one more com­plete waste of tax­pay­ers’ money, and achieve noth­ing.

It would also help if all legs were re­stricted to one lane only on the ex­its from the in­ter­sec­tion. This can be done very sim­ply and at min­i­mum cost by sculpt­ing the ex­its to al­low just one through-lane, thus elim­i­nat­ing merge prob­lems: two lanes in, one forc­ing a com­pul­sory right-turn on an ar­row, the other straight through and per­mit­ting a left turn.

Yet, I am not hold­ing my breath. GOR­DON ED­WARDS, East Vic­to­ria Park.
