Melbourne's Blind Intersection: Park St and St Kilda Road

If you drive along Park Street and turn right into St Kilda Road and successfully negotiated any tram movements, midway into the intersection, you are left blind not knowing the state of the traffic signals regulating the intersection.

There are no traffic signals that can be seen as you cross the intersection.  This causes drivers to hesitate and not knowing if they can proceed. the Council needs to install an additional set of lights on the South East corner.

This problem has been in existence for years (made worst with the development of the Domain Tram Interchange) and Engineering Services still have not addressed this blind spot which is a major safety risk.

Efforts to contact Engineering Services unsuccessful . Calls not returned

No signals if turning right
Light facing wrong direction
