At least five accidents since April, near-misses almost daily and a growing community campaign have drawn council attention to a Glenroy traffic hazard.
Albury mayor Kevin Mack said a review of traffic management in the Tenbrink and Hodge Streets area would begin next week to help identify safety improvements.
Residents have been lobbying for change, saying the combination of the Gap Road hill, a 60km/h speed limit that is often exceeded and give way rather than stop signs on secondary roads created danger.
Terry Hayden and his family, who have lived on Tenbrink Street for 17 years, dropped 500 flyers into neighbourhood letter boxes last weekend asking people to make council aware of their concerns.

"Everyone's aware that it's a dangerous stretch of road, the speed has to be reduced, the road surface, obviously in wet weather, it's quite easy for people to lose control," he said.
"It's just a regular occurrence, these accidents; between mid-April to now, we've had five incidents where damage has been caused.
"About five weeks ago a vehicle lost control coming down off Gap Road, went through the bus stop, hit the seat, ended up in Lots of Tots.
"A car going through a childcare centre's fence, surely that sets off alarm bells to have something done."
Lots of Tots Early Learning Centre director Stacey Condon said the Gap Road centre had to close on June 13 because the fence had been brought down in the overnight incident.
"Nobody was hurt but it affected all the parents because they had to find alternative care for the day while we fixed it," she said.
Mrs Condon said traffic safety had been a issue for years, but there seemed to have been many accidents recently.
"We're right on the corner and cars speed, they cut the corner, just really dangerous driving and we've got families bringing in small children in and out of the building, so it's a really big concern to us," she said.
Lots of Tots parent Rachael Puddephatt said the childcare centre had no real protection from the traffic.
"The playground extends right to the back fence there and children are allowed to play there," she said.
Watson Street resident Ross Hamilton said Gap Road could be a "particularly common hooning spot".
"Almost every morning there's a near miss between a car turning down Hodge Street and the traffic they turn across," he said.
Albury councillor Darren Cameron, who drives through the intersection regularly, said the review would take two or three weeks and then need to go before the local traffic committee.
"It's possible that we'll have an out of sessions meeting of the traffic committee to speed things up," he said.
"This is important and we want to deal with it quickly."
Cr Mack said the review would include traffic/speed counts, turning movements and origin/destination analysis.
"We're grateful to community members for identifying concerns in their neighbourhood and look forward to working together to achieve positive results," he said.
