Residents draw to the attention of BCC the Junction Street and O'Keefe Street intersection. I have on a few occasions now witnessed near misses at this intersection for both vehicles and people crossing over Junction Street. The Logan Road / O'Keefe Street traffic circle is a very busy place during morning and afternoon peak hours. Vehicles wanting to turn right into O'Keefe Street from Junction Street have to take calculated risks to jump the intersection to join the traffic.The same apply for vehicles turning right out of O'Keefe Street in Junction Street. This becomes even more dangerous when a vehicle turns and people are crossing the road at the same time. A serious accident, if not already will occur at some stage, as motorists have to wait very long and becomes frustrated and takes chances.I have also witnessed motorists turning left into O'Keefe Street from Junction Street to then 50 meters further make a u-turn over a road island to get into the left hand lane on O'Keefe Street towards the traffic circle.
Your petitioners therefore request that the Logan Road and O'Keefe Street traffic circle be enlarged in a rectangular shape to include Junction Street, to allow for normal traffic flow into a traffic circle from Junction Street, O'Keefe Street and Logan Road.
