A risky right-turn in Wollongong will be made easier with a new set of traffic lights.
In recent years, a number of cars turning right out of Keira Street at the Springhill Road intersection have been T-boned by eastbound traffic.
"Six of the seven casualty crashes which occurred in the five years to December 31, 2017, involved a vehicle travelling south on Keira Street attempting to turn right into Springhill Road, colliding with a vehicle travelling east on Springhill Road," a Roads and Maritime Services spokeswoman said.
"As a result of these crashes 14 people were injured including seven seriously injured."

The lights will only control traffic turning out of Keira Street and heading east on Springhill Road.

The dedicated westbound lane on Springhill Road will remain and traffic in this direction will not be controlled by the traffic lights.
The spokeswoman said Springhill Road - which already has a set of lights at the Bridge Street intersection - will be monitored to see any traffic effects.
The first stage of work starts on Monday and Tuesday, between 7pm and 3am.
Lane closures and a 40km/h speed limit will be in force.
Further work will take place between 7am and 6pm from May 29 for five weeks with only a small impact on traffic.
