RESIDENTS have demanded one of the city's most dangerous blackspots be upgraded immediately following yet another tragedy last week.
A 61-year-old Darlington Point woman was killed when her car slammed head-on into a Pantec truck on Thursday on the Kidman Way at Willbriggie, about 100 metres south of the intersection with North Kooba Settlers Road.
The intersection has been the site of a number of fatalities and serious accidents over the years, and fed-up residents have called for urgent action.
Willbriggie mum Julie Andreazza came within inches of being killed at the intersection when her car ploughed into a semi-trailer there two decades ago.
She has successfully lobbied for a stop sign at North Kooba Settlers Road and a turning lane off the Kidman Way, but said more needed to be done.
"I use that road every day and your heart sinks when you hear there's been another death there," Mrs Andreazza said.
"I think the only answer is traffic lights, it's just so dangerous.
"No one ever stops at the stop sign and when you're pulling out of North Kooba, it's very hard to see traffic coming from Darlington Point.
"Something definitely needs to be done."
Griffith City Council's traffic committee chairman Cr Doug Curran said the configuration of the intersection made it one of the most perilous in the district.
"You've got a stop sign and a four-way intersection, then you've got a bridge and just on the other side of the bridge there's another four-way intersection," Cr Curran said.
"There's also a bit of a bend there so you can go over the bridge and all of a sudden you're on the wrong side of the road.
"It's one of the worst spots in the local government area, it's extremely dangerous.
"I think potentially we have to look at reducing speed through that stretch and putting more signage up."
The Kidman Way is a state road, under the jurisdiction of the Roads and Maritime Service (RMS).
Cr Curran said he would raise the issue with the RMS at the next meeting of the traffic committee.
