IN your article Residents call for changes to Cockburn Road at Coogee Beach, Gazette, April 30, I would also like to voice my concerns regarding the dangers of this road.

I agree with the group of residents, as it is very difficult and dangerous to cross Cockburn Road due to the large number of cars and trucks travelling at high speed.

To elaborate on the dangers, travelling south on Cockburn Road and approaching Coogee Beach (going downhill), Cockburn Road consists of two lanes of traffic and a bicycle lane all merging into one lane and no bicycle lane (all at 70km/h) ” how dangerous is that!

On top of all this, the road then bends and then pedestrians, cars and bicycles are all trying to either cross the road or exit from Beach Road.

I really hope something can be done about this dangerous road really soon.
