New stop signs with a flashing light have been put up at Punkeydoodles Corners.
It comes after a fatal crash occurred at the intersection of Oxford Road 5, and Punkeydoodles Avenue last month.
Following that collision, local residents called for change to the dangerous area, which included a petition which received over 10,000 signatures.
Punkeydoodles corners straddles the areas of East Zorra-Tavistock, Perth East, and Wilmot Township.
Last month, the mayor of Zorra Township wrote on social media that Oxford County had already identified the intersection for a feasibility study to determine how to make it safer.
He also added at that time, that the blinking stop sign would be used in the interim.
