It's time that proper authorities do something regards this particular accident spot( the intersection of Raw Square and Churchill Avenue). Its common that every now and then car crash with minor injuries keeps happening at this spot and my balcony is facing to this intersection, so i basically hear the loud bang and see accidents most of the time.
My opinion is declare black spot followed by speed limit with red light and speed camera. well hope my opinion bring some changes.
