IT is hazardous to turn right from Gillon Street into Manning Road in Karawara.
I had to mount the median strip alongside the seagull island when a vehicle hidden from view by a sign was speeding towards me.
Although the City of South Perth claims there are good sightlines, this unnecessary sign (silver arrowed) obstructs vehicles waiting in the seagull island from seeing vehicles travelling west along Manning Road.
According to the City, 11 accidents there in the past five years does not warrant changing this intersection to traffic lights (cost $1.5 million) or conversion to left turn only in and out of Gillon Street.
A roundabout should be there. The accident count may be relatively low because of inadequate recording. Glass and plastic fragments are proof that this is not a safe intersection.
I avoid it because two near misses have been enough for me. AHMED YOUSSEF, Manning.
