Qld’s worst roads – time to name and shame
Ever driven down a lacklustre Queensland road and found yourself dodging potholes, looking for overtaking lanes or simply coming to a halt when the road goes under during a bit of rain?
If that’s you – we want to know about it.
RACQ is shaping up to name and shame the State’s worst offending roads, and has called on drivers to help identify the most dangerous and in need of urgent attention.
RACQ’s Lucinda Ross said the Club’s Unroadworthy Roads Survey 2018 was a quick and easy way for drivers to voice their concerns.
“We’re all too familiar with those frustrating and troublesome roads in our area. Whether it’s a road that’s full of potholes, is narrow, lacks overtaking lanes and line markings, or floods easily – we need your help in pinpointing it,” Ms Ross said.
“We’ll then use these results to lobby Local, State and Federal Governments to prioritise funding to upgrade and maintain these roads.
“Last time we ran our survey more than 400 sub-standard roads were identified across the State.”
Ms Ross said previous surveys had helped prompt funding improvements for roads across Queensland.
“We all deserve to have a say on where we want our rates and taxes spent – but we can’t help get the right roads fixed if we don’t know where they are,” she said.
“You’re our eyes on the ground and your suggestions could help save lives, or simply make the commute a little more bearable for everyone.”
Participants in the survey go into the draw to win one of two $250 EFTPOS gift cards.
The survey, which closes at 11.59pm on 18 June, 2018 could be found at https://www.racq.com.au/badroads.
