I note some improvements have been made at this dangerous intersection but it is still not good enough. Taranaki Street needs to go on a road diet.
5 lanes of traffic is just too much. Limiting the amount of space available to vehicular traffic has the opposite effect to what most people think, it actually helps traffic flow as people look for alternate routes.
There are obviously a few issues with pedestrian behaviour as well, people are in too much of a hurry on a occasion, we all need to slow down a bit.
