Call to fix congested Sunshine Coast Roads

Results from an Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) survey have revealed roads the public believe are the most congested.

Respondents rated the Bruce Highway as the most troublesome road in the region.

Other roads among the top five ‘worst roads’ according to the survey were the Eumundi Noosa Road at the Grays Road Intersection, the Caloundra Road, the Sunshine Motorway and Beckmans Road.

More than 2,500 nominations for the worst congested roads came in from across Queensland, with over 450 roads identified as congested throughout the state.

RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross said, “It’s clear congestion is an issue that really grinds our gears. It costs us time and lost productivity, and that’s why we need to address it now.”

“These ‘red spots’ may be due to a set of traffic lights taking too long to change, not enough lanes, delays at a rail crossing, or something completely different.”

The survey results will be made available to Federal, State and Local governments and will be used by RACQ to help prioritise its advocacy work.

Mrs Ross said, “We’ll use this information to guide our policy and use it to lobby all tiers of government for solutions to bottlenecked areas.”
