A big bang, houses shaking and then silence. Last Thursday, a man was taken to hospital after a crash that shook the surrounding houses at the corner of Iles Rd and Selwyn Rd just before 10am. This was enough to scare residents in the area to speak up about the growing concerns of the high speed and rapidly growing traffic down their once quiet streets. Cira Olivier reports.

Some Lynmore residents are fearing for their safety as they say traffic woes on Te Ngae Rd are pushing more motorists down their once-quiet suburban streets, turning them into main roads.
