Bellvista experienced a taste of what many residents have been concerned about for sometime on Tuesday afternoon when there was an accident on Bellvista Boulevard during school pick up times.
This time the accident was a minor one, a serious accident would have made life extremely difficult for motorists using Bellvista Blvd. The accident occurred near the intersection of Bellcarra Place and Bellvista Blvd. Traffic was backed up all the way down to Dumbarton Drive and beyond but the major holdup was caused when incoming traffic was backed up to the roundabout with Caloundra Rd and subsequently blocking Caloundra Road traffic in both directions.
Fortunately it was cleared quickly and traffic was back to normal after a short time when police attended the scene.
Residents understand that the duplication of Bellvista Blvd can only only occur when a certain traffic trigger point is activated. However residents know that common sense indicates action needs to occur now to improve safe access to and from the estate.
