Such a bad intersection.

Many times I have used this busy intersection and marvelled how it could be so bad. It is in dire need of a redesign. I am not surprised there was an accident, I wonder that there aren’t more . I guess it’s Western Bay council area? Or Transport NZ? Get a plan and get on to it pronto ! Pity about the Greerton " traffic engineering debacle " just saying
