D’Aguilar Hwy among Queensland’s worst roads

THE State's most dangerous and problematic roads have been named and shamed today by Queenslanders fed up with driving in hazardous conditions - and D'Aguilar Hwy is right up there.

More than 400 local, State and Federal roads were reported to the RACQ last month through its Unroadworthy Roads Survey 2016.

RACQ Executive General Manager Advocacy Paul Turner said the biggest safety problems included rough road surfaces, followed by too-narrow roads or traffic lanes, poor road shoulders and roads prone to flooding.

Mr Turner said RACQ received around 900 responses to its survey which would now form a vital part of the Club's representations to local, State and Federal governments on priority road maintenance and upgrade projects.

 

The top 10 Unroadworthy Roads in Queensland are:

1. Bruce Highway

2. Pacific Mwy

3. Mount Lindesay Hwy
