Two serious accidents on Chambers Flat road have been the catalyst for a residents' meeting with councillors and directors on Wednesday to upgrade it for drivers' safety.
The latest accident happened on Sunday morning, when a 24-year-old man died after his Toyota Hilux rolled near the intersection with Kenny Road.
The accident left a woman in a critical condition.
Paramedics assessed a further two occupants had minor injuries.
Division 9 councillor Scott Bannan will join Division 8 colleague Jacob Heremaia, council road staff and residents at the meeting.
Cr Bannan said the meeting had been organised prior to that accident, when a mother and child were in a head-on smash earlier this month.
"It was alarming as hell," Cr Bannan said.
"Two innocent people being in a head-on, on the way to school."
"We have had ongoing issues with that road," Cr Bannan said.
"Me, Jacob Heremaia and the roads team are doing everything we can to make this problem road safer for drivers.
"I travel that road every day on my way to work. I have seen the issues."
Cr Bannan said people had called for a sharp bend to be straightened, but he did not want to see that happen.
"If we make that road straight, people are going to go faster," he said.
Cr Bannan hinted at installing traffic calming devices to slow drivers down near the corner.
