Killer Intersections

NZTA has released its list of top 15 killer intersections:

New Zealand’s most dangerous intersections have been revealed for the first time.

The New Zealand Transport Agency disclosed the 15 intersections that have claimed the most injuries and deaths – showing the number of injury crashes had increased 25 per cent in the past year.

There were seven injury or fatal crashes on the corner of Auckland’s Great South Rd and Main Highway, Ellerslie, and the same number on the corner of Customs St West and Albert St in the city.

There were 60 injury crashes on the worst 15 intersections – up from 48 the previous year.

The Customs Street West, Albert Street Intersection is confusing with two sets of one way roads converging.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
