Update, 12.13pm: READERS have used social media to express their annoyance at the dangers created by a missing traffic light on Minjungbal Dr, which the Mydailynews reported on this morning. This is what some of our readers have had to say about the story on Facebook:

Janine Buckland: Why waste time investigating .. get another traffic light in there before someone gets killed
Kev Reed: should be straight down there installing a new light not advising people to stop and try look at the other lights.. should be a matter of high priority for road saftey people pay taxes just as much as any area why the hell is the states of the roads so bad in the tweed

Initial report, 7am: Many people hate sitting at traffic lights, but when one disappears completely it obviously leaves motorists a little confused.

A traffic light on the intersection of Minjungbal Dr and Kirkwood Rd, Tweed Heads South, was missing yesterday, with only a bundle of wires sitting in its place.

It has been missing for over a week, with Roads and Maritime Services stating that they are looking into the mystery of the missing traffic light.

"Roads and Maritime Services is investigating the missing traffic light at the intersection of Minjungbal Drive and Kirkwood roads in Tweed Heads South," a spokeswoman said.

"Incidents such as these can be reported to RMS on 132 213.

"RMS will work with NSW Police to ensure safety at the intersection."

Motorists heading north on Minjungbal Dr were encouraged by Tweed Highway Patrol Acting Sergeant Justin Lavin to be cautious at the intersection and to stop their car slightly further back from the stop line to observe the remaining traffic lights.

He could not confirm whether a charge for running the red light would remain while it was missing, but said that it was possible.
