Yes

Yes definately

I think it’s fine as is surely money could be better spent elsewhere first.

Yes , It is Speedway Past Shara , many’s the time I have pulled out of Shara , especially heading South , Nothing coming And next thing there is a car in the Rear view Mirror ! It is bloody Dangerous!

Yes! 🙌

Yes to both

Should be made to 50 km. I have seen two serious accidents occur at this intersection and with Splendor and other events nearby, more accidents are sure to follow

Been many of accidents at this intersection over the past 40 odd years. Yes would be my vote however I’m sure there is many other roads in our shire that need attention before hand!

Yes....So needed!

Roundabout and speed reduction. So many near misses witnessed

A speed reduction to 60kmph at absolute least. Better signage to introduce risk intersection. Money for a round about could be spent else where tho.

I think the speed limit on the approach should be reduced but a roundabout is not essential, particularly as the money could be put to better use. One example, of many, moving the pedestrian crossings in Mullumbimby's Main Street.

For sure

The speed limit should definitely be reduced to 60kph especially as it's approaching a Sports Field . Mayor Richardson told me back when the Sports Field ( should be called Football Field as that's all it's used for), was opened that there was no chance for another roundabout considering that there is one at the previous intersection leading on to the Freeway. As the bike path and footpath are on the northern side of ShRa Bvde. at the very least, there should be a "safe" pedestrian crossing to the Field but back from the corner. Then, I believe, it would be compulsory to limit the speed of cats approaching that intersection.

Definitely reduce the speed 🙏🏾

No I think there are other more pressing road issues. Also of note that intersection used to be onto the hwy with a greater speed limit and so the accident stats may be a bit off. Just like the salad bowl near orana/balemo there were a lot of accidents there before it became bruns v way.

Absolutely I can’t count the number of times I’ve pullled out with my trailer on behind after I’ve looked over and over again and suddenly there’s a car nearly on top of me so scary

No

Yes speed reduction definitely!

Why not just cut the trees back so you can get a better veiw of the cars coming down the hill, don't need to change the speed at all

Definitely reduced to 60 however not sure if people will abide

No to both!!!

Yes, to both. It is not an uncommon occurrence for me to check for oncoming traffic in preparation to turn right, only to see someone barreling towards me at high speed in the split second it takes me to begin to pull out. This happened to me twice just yesterday!

yes
