  1. How many people have to be injured or killed before something is done about this lethal intersection? To have stopped traffic turning across an 80 km/h flow of traffic is madness. Not only is there a lot of elderly people who use this intersection to travel to Lismore, the setting sun & the fact its positioned on a hill is also a recipe for disaster.
