Mapping the state's most dangerous roads

IN AN effort to have the state's most dangerous and problematic roads fixed, RACQ has asked Queenslanders to name and shame the worst roads.

The club's Unroadworthy Roads Survey 2016 has opened and RACQ spokeswoman Lauren Ritchie said it was a quick and easy way for drivers to raise their concerns. 

"Whether it's a street which goes under every time there's a hint of rain, potholes, a road that's narrow, lacks overtaking chances or has hard-to-see signage, or even a spot where hazardous rubbish gets left constantly, we want to hear about it,"

"The compiled results will form a vital part of our representations to local, state and federal governments on which road maintenance and upgrade projects need to be prioritised.

"We can't help get it fixed if we don't know about the problem, so it's really important for people to get involved and take part.

"Your suggestion for change could end up saving lives or even simply make the daily commute less stressful for everyone who travels on that particular road."

This year the survey has an added Google Maps function which makes it easier to identify the road name and pinpoint exactly where the issue is. 

"Last time this investigation was run, we identified over 500 inadequate or substandard roads around Queensland," Ms Ritchie said.

Complete the survey here before the end of the month.
