A group of residents believe it's only a matter of time before disaster strikes, but no one is doing anything about it.
The Riverview Estate homeowners say traffic-lights must be installed at the corner of the Murray Valley Highway and Whytes Road to keep pedestrians safe and slow down driver.
The undeveloped intersection has also left the estate with only one way out leading up into the bushfire season, and slowed development of surrounding roads, residents claim.
Since Lisa Wilson moved in about 12 months ago, she's heard of four significant car crashes at the Riverside Boulevard, Murray Valley Highway roundabout, including a truck rollover.
Right before the roundabout, the 80kmh speed limit is lowered, but few trucks or cars slow down Mrs Wilson said.
"Cars come screaming through the roundabout," she said.
"We pull out of our estate, we look left, look right, and we hope to god. It's a death trap."
One crash closed the left lane of the Murray Valley Highway for hours, leaving residents with no option other than using the right lane of the roundabout. But that's not the only danger, her neighbour Stern Strauss said.
Dirt roads in and out of the estate, such as Whytes road, have been blocked off making Riverside Boulevard the only entrance or exit - but google continues to direct people, including ambulances, down to blocked roads.
"The ambulances they get sent all different places... how many minutes are they driving around trying to get in, while someone is waiting, possibly dying" he said.
"We need to get these roads open. One of our biggest concerns is we're now coming into the bushfire season, there's only one entry and one exit. We've got four potential other entry points we can open up but nothing can be done until the intersection goes in."
Developer JMP, who is responsible for sealing the roads, said once the intersection is the intersection of Murray Valley Highway and Whytes Road is completed, Whytes Road will be sealed.

Mrs Wilson said many parties are involved because Murray Valley Highway is a state road, Whytes Road is a council road but must be sealed by the developers, and the intersection sits near army land.
"Army, VicRoads, Council and the developer they all have to put in but it's a VicRoads road. At the end of the day they make the decision with the input of the other entities and the financial input of other entities," she said.
"But what is happening is no one can make a decision... no one can get in a round table conversation... nothing's happening."
JMP's Andrew Stern said they have contacted VicRoads, Wodonga Council and Defence about getting lights at the intersection.
"We have been pushing to have it done for a number of years," he said.
"It's incredibly dangerous, the amount of traffic that use the Murray Valley Highway has gone up."
Residents are calling on VicRoads to install traffic lights at the intersection.
"We feel like we've been forgotten," Mrs Wilson said.
"They all need to come to the party and work together but because there not working together and nothing is happening.
"We need safer roads, we need a safer intersection."

At a community meeting Wodonga Council chief executive Mark Dixon said would lobby state agencies.
"It's the developers job to put that intersection in at the time when the development has reached the scale it's now reached, but understandably they need help," he said
Wodonga Council have announced a contribution of $300,000 for the intersection, which has an estimated cost of $1.2 million.
Mr Dixon said they wanted the state, who own the road, and Defence, who utilise the road, to put in a similar amount of money, as well as the developer. He said they'd written to Defence and VicRoads.
Mr Stern said it was great to hear council commit to lobbying on behalf of residents.
"Council have got a very important role to play with their ability to lobby and influence VicRoads and Defence," he said.
Regional Roads Victoria's Steve Bowmaker said VicRoads were working with the community, Wodonga Council, and the developer. He said feedback and safety and traffic impact assessment reports will be used to determine any upgrades required.
