The D’Aguilar Highway has again been named one of the Top 10 worst roads in Queensland in a survey conducted by the RACQ.
But it was the Bruce Highway that took out the number one spot on the RACQ’s latest Unroadworthy Roads Survey released on Wednesday.
The D’Aguilar Highway came in 10th spot, with Alma Road, Dakabin; the Mt Lindesay Highway; Kennedy Highway; Henry Road, Griffin; Pacific Motorway; Foxwell Road, Coomera; Yawalpah Road, Pimpama; and Ipswich-Boonah Road all getting worse scores.
RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross said this year’s survey by the motoring body attracted 1643 responses with more than 600 sub-standard roads nominated across Queensland.
Several roads in the South Burnett earned a mention from RACQ respondents:
- Mundubbera-Durong Road (from the North Burnett Regional Council boundary to Durong)
- Chinchilla-Wondai Road (from Darr Creek to Durong)
- Bunya Highway (from Wondai to Tingoora)
- Wheatlands Road (from the Proston Road turn-off to Wheatlands State School)
- Silverleaf Road (from Murgon to Hivesville)
- Glencliffe-Kumbia Road (from Kumbia to Maidenwell via Glencliffe)
- Kingaroy-Cooyar Road (all bridge crossings)
- Benarkin Access Road (Blackbutt side)
- Manumbar Road (from Burnett Highway to Elgin Vale Sawmill)
- Kilcoy-Murgon Road (from Elgin Vale Road to the Gympie Regional Council boundary)
- Kilkivan-Tansey Road (from Tansey to Kilkivan)
- George Street, Nanango (from 7 George Street to the end)
- Bunya Highway (from Dalby to Kingaroy)
The RACQ conducts the Unroadworthy Roads Survey to raise awareness about the condition of Queensland roads.
The organisation asks respondents to nominate those roads they considered to be in a poor or inadequate condition, unfit for the function they were designed to perform and not providing an acceptable level of service to the road user.
