accident prone junction
the junction at cecil street and robinson road is now a very dangerous accident spot. 8 accidents occurred over the last 3 days. the situation was created by the removing of a road divider which prevented vehicles from driving straight into d'almeida street. and the reason for removing the divider is to stop pedestrians from crossing that stretch of road and standing on the divider. the intention to remove the divider may be good but what happens now is the creation of a very dangerous spot. the authorities seem to be quite reluctant to take immediate actions to correct the problem. maybe they think they have a lot of time to play with, just like the nicoll highway case, and waiting for some ugly accidents to happen, maybe the lost of some lives. it is now a matter of whether more accidents will happen first or some corrective measures be taken quickly to prevent them from happening.
