Dohertys Road, Laverton north is one of the major east-west routes in one of the busiest industrial
precincts, with traffic increasing. Each day drivers make dangerous and illegal decisions as they
navigate their way in and out of this growing precinct, namely the Dohertys Road and Hume
intersection as well as Cherry Lane intersection. Dangerous situations are a daily occurrence.
The only way trucks can turn is by going on the wrong side ofthe road, especially when cars pull in
front of the line in Hume Road and they cannot manouvre around the corner. The intersection is almost
impossible to negotiate for trucks without the cooperation of other drivers and their own good driving skills.
