Really need a roundabout here. Awful to turn right onto SH2 from Omokoroa Rd and its only going to get worst with all the new housing being built at Omokoroa.

Sorry for those involved, BUT

It’s an intersection WAITING for MAJOR ACCIDENTS. NZTA - how many cars & TRUCKS, PASS this intersection on SH2 everyday - both ways? NZTA, how many vehicles EXIT Omokoroa Road onto SH2, (south - to Tauranga, OR north to Katikati, EVERY DAY? AND finally, how many vehicles coming from Tauranga TURN into Omokoroa Road EVERYDAY? OH, NZTA, don’t say that you don’t know, I have seen BOTH the rubber traffic counters AND people actually counting vehicles at this intersection MORE times than I can remember. The simple fact is that it’s a 80/100 kph highway that has, either, traffic trying to enter the traffic flow from a STANDING start, OR even worse has traffic trying to CROSS the 80/100 kph traffic from a standing start. DEATH TRAP
