QLD's top 10 most dangerous roads named and shamed

THE STATE's most dangerous and problematic roads have been named and shamed today by Queenslanders fed up with driving in hazardous conditions.

RACQ Executive General Manager Paul Turner said more than 400 local, state and federal roads were reported to the Club last month through its Unroadworthy Roads Survey 2016.

"The biggest safety bugbear by far is rough road surfaces, followed by too-narrow roads or traffic lanes, poor road shoulders and roads prone to flooding," he said.

"Unsurprisingly the Bruce Highway tops the list of the most complained about roads; nominated for rough, narrow conditions, congestion, and sections which are constantly cut off by floodwater.

"It's closely followed by the Pacific Motorway's congestion problems, lack of overtaking opportunities on the Mount Lindesay Highway and crashes at roundabouts north of Cairns on the Captain Cook Highway."

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:

1. Bruce Highway

2. Pacific Motorway

3. Mount Lindesay Highway

4. Captain Cook Highway

5. Rickertt Road, Ransome

6. D'Aguilar Highway

7. Kennedy Highway

8. Warrego Highway

9. New England Highway

10. Telegraph Road, Bracken Ridge.

Mr Turner said people could also take a look at all 438 nominated roads via an interactive heat map here showing exactly where and what road problems have been reported across Queensland.

The survey was announced on February 4, 2016, as a quick and easy way for people to express their concerns.

"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," RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said.

 "We can't help get it fixed if we don't know about the problem, so it was 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."

Last time the survey was run, RACQ identified over 500 inadequate or substandard roads across Queensland.

Dredging begins in Gladstone's port

Dredging the 2.3km Narrows crossing of the QCLNG and APLNG gas pipelines. The dredging involves a small backhoe dredge mounted on a barge, two tug boats, a survey vessel. After the pipelines are laid in the same trench, they will be covered with rock for protection from shipping and will still allow sufficient depth for boat traffic through The Narrows.

BUOYS removed to make room for dredging operations.
