AN ACCIDENT at the intersection of Pallas and Kent St is imminent according to a Maryborough resident.

Truck driver Brett Clark said school children swarm to the intersection in the afternoon and drivers often speed through red lights.

He said council had to act on the issue to prevent an accident.

"Council need to get off their backside and do something," he said.

"We were at the opening of the Maryborough pool; I raised it with the Mayor and he said it was a Main Roads responsibility.

"He did say he would follow up on it, but we haven't heard anything.

"And it's dangerous."

Mr Clark said he wants someone to take action.

"What's more important, main roads or a child's life?" he said.

"It's a big problem that road, there's no footpath so a lot of kids ride bikes and scooters on the road."

The intersection is on a hill and almost blind when travelling East on Kent St.

Mr Clark's son Troy attends Maryborough Central School and regularly crosses at the intersection Pallas and Kent St.
