Australia & # 39; s $ 4 BILLION Traffic Disaster: Stunning Highway Layout Confuses Drivers – Amid Urgent Warnings That Motorists Can Be Killed Soon
- The M4 of Sydney opened in July, but many drivers are confused with road changes
- Some see reversing from tunnels and 300 incidents have been reported
- Warnings have been given that someone could die as a result of irregular driving
A new road of $ 4 billion confuses drivers with the layout – and experts have warned that motorists can be killed in devastating collisions if it is not resolved.
The new M4 from Sydney, called WestConnex, opened in July and drivers saw dangerously winding across multiple lanes, seemingly bewildered about the road to follow.
Within a month after the opening of the highway, response vehicles were called to 300 crashes in the tunnels of the road.
The M4, called WestConnex, (photo) opened in July, but even three months later, motorists float dangerously across multiple lanes amid confusion about new road changes.
Several cars stop just before the entrance to the tunnel in an effort to prevent the $ 4.27 toll from being paid to force oncoming traffic to swing around them
The highway was put into chaos during the first month after the opening, when several cars were spotted during breaks and reversing from tunnels, just to avoid the toll.
& # 39; You kill yourself or someone else, it's that simple. Don't do it, & # 39; Andrew Constance, New South Wales Transport Minister, told reporters in August after several cars were dangerous.
An Ashfield resident told News.com.au that the drivers who tried to pay the $ 4.27 toll at the last minute endangered their lives.
& # 39; Someone will die there one day, & # 39; they said.
Accident Research Center investigator, Nimmi Candappa, said drivers made dangerous turns even months after opening.
& # 39; If it happens regularly, it's a concern. I looked at physical crashes and potential crashes, and just because they haven't finished yet doesn't mean it won't be a day, & she said.
A resident believed that motorists drove the new M4 so irregularly that they could lose their lives
& # 39; The fact that drivers do this is an indication that they cannot anticipate what is expected of them … and they do all sorts of strange things. & # 39;
Mrs. Candappa said that a different lane or fewer motorway exits can help make road conditions easier for drivers.
Parramatta and Ashfield were a few important points for attention, as many cars were seen as erratic, drove into lanes at the last minute and merged into oncoming traffic.
According to the publication, on average one car made a dangerous move on Wattle Street in Ashfield almost every minute, during different periods in early October.
Other cars were caught as they hit the road for oncoming trucks.
The M4 tunnels are expected to save 45 minutes of roadside travel during rush hour and bypass 22 traffic lights.
"This is an important step toward giving people more time back, so they spend less time in traffic and spend more time with family and friends, and also do things they love," said NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian during the opening in July to reporters. .
The next phase of WestConnex – an extension of the M5 to St. Peters – is expected to open next year.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted NSW Transport for comments.
