The Glandovey, Idris and Straven Residents’ Association commissioned a tracking analysis to look into traffic using the intersection. The report from traffic engineering company Traffic Design Group showed heavy vehicles could not navigate any turns of the Fendalton intersection without cutting into other lanes. It comes during a year-long campaign from residents to improve safety at the intersection. Residents want to see heavy vehicles banned from driving through the area and this report only cements that, group member and Glandovey Rd resident Nigel Francis said. The report has been sent to the city council. City councillor Raf Manji told the Nor’West News that when council resumed after the Christmas break, it would look into banning heavy vehicles from the area. Mr Francis said the sooner trucks are banned from the area, the better. He said the design of the intersection means there is no room for heavy vehicles, cars and cyclists, which makes it dangerous. •Turn to page 5 Age no problem to bowls champ Elmwood Park Bowling Club duo Bev Morel (left and below), and Sherrie Cottle, 57, were crowned national pairs champions in Dunedin on Sunday.
