Regional Roads Victoria does not plan to install traffic lights at the Natimuk - Bennet Road intersection, despite concerns from nearby residents.
The Natimuk - Bennett Road intersection has long been a contentious point for many residents, due to its lack of traffic lights.
Quantong resident Sallyann Ison said on her daily drive to Horsham she avoids the intersection purposely.
"The Bennett Road intersection needs a roundabout. I won't cross there as it is too dangerous and instead will go another way," she said.
"Yes there have been accidents and near misses on several occasions."
Ms Ison believed the road had not kept up with an increase in traffic from the highway over time.
"Many more grain, mineral sands and livestock trucks which are very essential, are travelling through as well. Wimmera highway - Natimuk road is a very busy road," she said.
Data from Regional Roads Victoria shows 2900 vehicles use the intersection per day on average.
In the five year period leading up to June 2020, there has been one car crash at the intersection, resulting in one person suffering minor injuries.

Department of Transport Grampians regional director Michael Bailey said Regional Roads Victoria was monitoring how the road network was performing and acts based on the information received from the data.
"The safety of everyone travelling on our road network is top priority - that's why our crews continuously monitor the network and carry out frequent road safety inspections right across western Victoria," Mr Bailey said.
"Any upgrade to our road network is based upon a range of factors, including crash history, strategic use and traffic volumes and types."
