IS there a particularly busy Gold Coast road that gives you a headache each and every day? If so, RACQ wants to know.
The state’s peak motoring body is asking for local motorists to name and shame the roads which constantly bring traffic to a standstill across the City for the latest RACQ Red Spot Congestion Survey.
RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross said drivers were in the best position to identify regularly congested roads and intersections that made them see red.

“Whether it’s a particular set of traffic lights taking too long to change, delays at a rail crossing, or something completely different, we want Queenslanders to help us pinpoint the locations and issues delaying their travels,” Ms Ross said.
“Congestion doesn’t just hold us up and keep us from doing the things we want to do with our friends and family, it also costs the economy through loss of productivity, so it’s an important issue to address.”
Ms Ross said RACQ would use the results from the State-wide survey to help prioritise its advocacy work when it lobbied Local, State and Federal governments for infrastructure funding and improvements.
“Several spots identified in previous surveys have since received upgrades, including Southport – Burleigh Road and several locations on the Pacific Motorway,” she said.
“More than 2,000 people had their say during the last survey and we encourage all Queenslanders to participate this time ‘round. You could a win $250 EFTPOS gift card.”
