Commenting on the story: Tree-clearing Old Belair Rd junction plan divides community
There is no easy solution here but a roundabout will indeed assist with traffic flow along with traffic lights at Main/Russell Street.
To suggest “James Road is a relatively minor road by comparison to Old Belair Road” distorts the fact that James Road is an important road to exit and enter this area of the Mitcham Hills. There are few roads and given the population growth, all roads including James Road have a role to play. – Sandra Vallance
This intersection has been problematic as far back as the 1960s when I first started driving.
The condition of Old Belair Road then was pretty appalling all around, narrow and undulating but it was the quickest way from my home in Hawthorndene.
However, cutting all those grey boxes would be a shameful loss. The traffic engineers should be more imaginative with their solutions. Surely other traffic control measures are available than a whacking great roundabout. – David Moncrieff
