During an interview with Perdeby, a resident in the area who has witnessed an accident on this street said, “The street is very dangerous and…[speed] bumps to limit the speed should be put on it, not necessarily a traffic circle”. She further stated that, “The tar road is not marked and does not indicate to the driver that they must stop”. Murray and Hay streets are close to UP and men’s residence Sonop.
The residents are requesting that the traffic department erect a traffic circle on the corner of Murray and Hay street, which is the same as the one in Brook street, in order to prevent the ongoing accidents and save lives.
