A multi-million dollar flyover is being planned for one of the city's busiest intersections on Girven Rd to curb traffic congestion and prevent crashes.

The Bay of Plenty Times yesterday broke the story about how police were targeting motorists using a left-hand lane to illegally turn right around the roundabout putting other motorists in danger.

Residents concerned at dangerous driving on the roundabout called for a complete overhaul, unaware of the flyover plan announced to the Bay Times late yesterday.

Roading officials said they expected to announce one of three flyover options for the notorious intersection near the Bayfair shopping centre later this month.
