Traffic in Hilton

The council has qualified for federal black spot funding to put in traffic lights at the Paget-South-Victor St intersection. The exact form the new intersection will take has not yet been decided. While most people would agree that it's a pretty crazy and dangerous intersection, some residents are concerned that traffic lights here will push even more traffic through residential streets.

I've talked to the City's technical services staff and they've agreed to do a comprehensive survey of traffic patterns in the area. If you know of particularly busy or dangerous streets in Hilton that you think need some form of traffic calming then please let me know.
