Calia Codina knows better than most how difficult navigating this busy Fairy Meadow intersection can be.
The 27-year-old real estate agent works nearby and has to complete troublesome right-hand turns from Guest Avenue onto the Princes Highway every day. One day, she was hit by another driver.
"I couldn't see any cars coming on my right, couldn't see anything on my left, proceeded out [and] a car came out of the [nearby] Cheesecake Shop," Ms Codina said.
"Two seconds was pretty much all it took and he [the driver] collected me."
The driver's-side hit left her suffering from whiplash.
She reported the crash to police and contacted Keira MP Ryan Park.
About seven years on, and after a number of recent crashes at the Guest Avenue intersection and the Elliotts Road traffic lights, Ms Codina wants action to improve safety in the area.
The sounds of screeching tyres and crumpling cars was being heard "on a daily basis", Ms Codina, a business development manager at First Choice Property Management and Sales, said.
"Surely the government can see that there is something wrong and there is something that can do to rectify the issues," she said.
Traffic lights or a left-turn only from Guest Avenue were among the options mooted.
The Mercury put the suggestions to Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), but was told they should be directed to Wollongong City Council.
A spokesman said the council had no plans to install traffic lights at Guest Avenue-Princes Highway because there were already signals at Elliotts Road and Daisy Street.
"Elliotts Road is within 55 metres from Guest Avenue. It isn't desirable to have traffic signals as close as this," he said.
Ms Codina said she didn't understand that rationale, citing the short distance between lights on the Princes Highway at The Avenue and Bellevue Road in Figtree.
"To me, it doesn't make sense ... it just means that they don't want to do anything in Fairy Meadow," she said.
"We'll just continue to watch all the accidents happen."
At the end of the day ... it could be you, it could be me that could be the next one that possibly gets hit."
The spokesman said a left-turn only from Guest Avenue would "not be accepted by the community" and individual drivers "always have the choice of making a left turn".
"There is a right turn ban at Cambridge Avenue to the north and Guest Avenue is the only other street servicing homes and the sporting fields off Cambridge and Guest Avenue," he said.
RMS crash data showed there were seven accidents at the highway/Guest Avenue intersection in the five years to June 30, one involving serious injury.
Many crashes likely go unreported.
Mr Park said he'd work with the community to address concerns.
