This afternoon I performed a right hand turn onto Korumburra Road opposite the big green hardware store on the edge of Wonthaggi.
At one point during this seemingly simple manoeuvre my vehicle was directly facing a car coming from the opposite direction that was also turning right.
We stood, metres apart, for some minutes while traffic flowed around us. A car heading toward Wonthaggi from Korumburra was held up by us; vehicles lined up behind us as trucks passed on both sides.
Eventually there was a gap in the traffic and we proceeded.
I know the council has priorities but the inherent risk of a head-on collision at this intersection is clear to everyone who uses it.
The volume of traffic has been increasing steadily over the years, providing plenty of warning that a solution needs to be implemented as soon as practicable.
