The growing population in the southwest suburbs has contributed to worsening traffic in the area due to the perceived failure of infrastructure to keep up with the significant increase of vehicles. The road serves as the main thoroughfare used by southwest residents on their way to the CBD. It also has been pointed out that one of the reasons of traffic is that multiple entry points and traffic lights that make motorists stop and go frequently, whilst accidents are usually caused by motorists on their phones especially when stationary at traffic lights.
