Once Kylie Capararo knew why sirens were wailing outside her house in Church St, her action plan began to evolve.
Mrs Capararo has lived on the busy residential street for eight years and believes the Church and Kelso streets intersection is a troubled one.
About 3.50pm on Monday a school bus and prime mover collided. An eight-year-old boy was killed a number of others were injured.
Mrs Capararo said there was another accident at the same intersection two months ago. Fortunately, it wasn’t serious.
She hopes now, as a result of this afternoon’s tragedy, proper signs can be installed on the road.
“There just needs to be better signage on the road - you get a lot of near misses,” she said. “Something has to be done. There was an accident there a couple of months ago. You’ve always got to be careful.
“It has a stop sign, but it’s not sign-posted very well. I’m going to go and see council because this is ridiculous.
“The last accident was a near-miss where someone could have been killed and now this has happened. It’s a child and it makes it even worse.”
Mrs Capararo said while there is a stop sign at the intersection, it was “tiny” and the lines at the intersection appeared to be faded.
“I don’t know the ins and outs of everything that happened with the crash but they just need to put a sign that says’stop sign ahead’ on the road,” she said.
Mrs Capararo said residents of Church, Kelso and surrounding streets decided to petition council to have clear signs posted at the intersection.
