Just wanted to put in my two cents’ worth regarding the intersection at Farmers Rd.
I think it is a simple fix and money shouldn’t act as a problem.
As a truck driver in Matamata I think a roundabout at Firth St/ Farmers Rd is needed as soon as possible.
This would help slow south-bound traffic before the school as well.
It’s madness having the crossing near a corner, it needs to be moved before someone is killed.
Last of all, the Matamata College school bus bay needs to move behind the school fence.
There would be plenty of space at the front of the school behind the fence to move it to.
It’s just too dangerous to be loading kids on such a busy road.
