Good to see the RMS listens

Dear Beagle Editor, It has been more than six months since there was another near fatality at the Hector McWilliam Drive/Princes Highway intersection involving a motorcyclist and yet it seems the powers that be have done nothing and the talkfest continues. Is it really going to take a fatality before something is done..?. There have been numerous ideas suggested by Tuross residents such as reduced speed limits on the highway to another stupid roundabout but there is a cost effective solution right under their noses. On many occasions I have spoken to the RMS and suggested to them that they put a small concrete island in the middle of the road in the Hector McWilliam side as it meets the highway and it only has to be three to five metres long with a large Stop sign in it with another stop sign to the left for drivers going south with a large white line right across the roadway. Problem solved. From what I read in The Beagle it sounds like that they have agreed with my suggestion. At least stop signs will jolt the average mind into what is expected and the fact it can be a dangerous intersection and in doing so will stop northbound traffic cutting across the intersection to beat southbound traffic which I see way too much of as well as make people enter the northbound side with the correct line. Over the years there has been so much comment from Tuross people about the intersection and yet the ironic thing Tuross is that its your intersection and you all know its issues and yet so many of you flirt with danger daily in the way you approach it. I actually sat up there for a bit the other day and just watched and some of the antics were so dangerous it was amazing and yes you guessed it.. mainly locals… Just as a footnote if you must bust your biscuit to get out in front of that semi trailer coming up Turlinjah hill at a 100kph at least have the courtesy to go a little faster than 70 Ks all the way to Moruya.
