Avonhead people have now joined the ever-growing queue of people wanting the city council to do something about the issue. Residents say since the closure of the Avonhead and Russley Rd intersection in November 2015, heavy vehicles are taking short cuts from Roydvale Ave, Hawthornden Rd and Cutts Rd.
