Qld drivers urged to nominate the worst roads in their suburbs

Do you have a certain road that you travel everyday that really makes you see red? Queensland drivers are being urged to nominate the worst congestion bottlenecks in their suburb as part of RACQ’s Red Spot Congestion Survey.

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said local motorists were in the best position to identify roads and intersections that really get on their nerves.

“Whether it’s traffic lights that take too long to change, delays at a rail crossing or something completely different, we want drivers to pinpoint locations that consistently delay their journey,” Ms Smith said.


“Traffic delays are not only frustrating but congestion actually costs the economy through loss of productivity.”

Ms Smith said the Club would use the results from this Queensland-wide survey to prioritise its advocacy work and lobby governments of all levels for upgrades.

“Several red spots identified in previous surveys have received upgrades, including the Ipswich Motorway, Gateway Motorway north and the rail crossing at Telegraph Road, Bald Hills in Brisbane,” she said.
