A Wollongong City Council plan to install lights at a Unanderra intersection has some residents hot under the collar.
On Wednesday the Mercury reported on council working to place lights at the intersection of the Princes Highway and Victoria Street.
"The community feedback demonstrated a desire to see council improve the safety of both pedestrians and motorists in this location," a Wollongong City Council spokeswoman said.
However some Mercury readers are less than impressed with the idea, because it means another set of traffic lights along the highway in a stretch of just over 200 metres.
"More lights ... that will be three sets on top of each other," Angela Ross wrote on the Mercury's Facebook page.
Christine Bannon was worried that she might get every set of red lights while driving along the highway.
"Exactly what Unanderra needs," wrote Frank Martin,"three sets of lights within 100 metres of each other.
"Watch the traffic build up now."
Kirstie Lumley suggested things could get even worse.
"Wait, we are still mean to get traffic lights on the corner of the Princes Highway and Nudjia Street yet," she wrote.
"So that's another set all within walking distance."
Some even felt council should use the money to build lifts at Unanderra station, unaware that was a state government responsibility.
Others felt council had made a mistake and there was a better option.
"A roundabout would have helped the flow of traffic," wrote Blaga Stanko.
Some, however, were pleased with council's decision.
"That's good, it's so needed in that section," wrote Jenna Bugno.
A council spokeswoman said it had taken the other two sets of lights into account.
"The signals at Victoria Street are part of a larger strategy looking to address traffic flows into and out of Tannery Street and Central Road and council did take into consideration the wider impact on traffic these changes would make," the spokeswoman said.
"Traffic lights in close proximity, like these, are co-ordinated so that they 'work together' to maintain traffic flow."
The spokeswoman also said the lights were chosen as because it was the best solution to community feedback.
"The community feedback focused on improving pedestrian safety in the town centre and traffic lights allow for the movement of both vehicles and pedestrians," she said.
"Roundabouts do not provide the same level of pedestrian safety - particularly on the highway where there are multiple lanes heading north and south."
