ITC does not live far from the intersection at River Road West and Longueville Road and we regularly hear the screech of brakes. We also regularly see the traffic light missing as it is knocked down (the one on the traffic island as you are heading north). It really is a traffic black spot. We would love to know if you think this is the most dangerous intersection in Lane Cove.
Does anyone else find this intersection dangerous? A roving reporter contacted us about an accident they were involved in last week at this intersection. They advised:
Last Thursday I was involved in a car accident at the Blaxlands Corner intersection (By the Longueville Sporting Club). I was heading east from River Road West proceeding through a green light when a car heading north to Longueville Rd came through the red light and collided with me. Fortunately there were no injuries but both cars were badly damaged. The tow truck driver told me that he attended a similar accident only the previous Saturday. The other driver said he mistook the green filter left arrow to proceed straight ahead. It appears this is a notoriously bad intersection. I’ve written to the RMS and Lane Cove Council asking them to look at how to make this safer. Have not had a response yet.
What do you think? Have you seen near misses at this corner? What other areas of Lane Cove are dangerous?
