I am a resident of park orchards. I am writing to advice you about the intersection between Hopetown Road and Brucedale Cres.

Despite the give way sign on both sides of the road, this intersection has led to multiple accidents. Our family, in the past 2 years, have had 2 serious accidents with one resulting in a total wright off of our car. Another leading to weeks in repair.

On both occasions it was related to the school community one was a parent rushing to drop off her child and the other a teacher. They both failed to check for cars on both sides and crossed the road only crash into our car.

We have also had numerous close misses they were avoided by our car braking as we travelled towards the intersection at Hopetown Road just in time to avoid a collision.

I am 15 years old and to get out of our house we need to cross this intersection. Each time our car gets closer to the intersection my heart beats fast and I get anxious scared that we might result in another accident.

I think to solve this huge problem would be to either:

  • putting a speed bump on both sides of the road (in Brucedale Cres).
  • Alternatively, we can put a round about in the middle of this intersection to slow down the incoming cars.
