The rapidly-growing Bundaberg region is a major city centre in Queensland, located on the Burnett River and currently supporting more than 93 000 local residents. Known as the Southern Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the city is a popular holiday destination for visitors from around Australia as well as international tourists. The local roads are becoming steadily more congested as the population grows and more visitors flock to the area, which leads to busier roads and a rising number of car accidents every year.

The Worst Roads in Bundaberg
Bundaberg has a number of local roads where congestion and car accidents are common, due to either dangerous driving or poor quality roads. We strongly advise all drivers in the area to take care when travelling these routes. Avoid taking risks, follow all speed limits and road rules, and be aware and considerate of other drivers sharing the road with you.
Rosedale Road through Bundaberg and Avondale is notorious for traffic crashes, with many drivers frequently speeding and driving dangerously. The road has a number of blind crests, narrow bridges and rough road edges. While heavy policing of the road has decreased the number of car accidents over the years, drivers should still be careful when travelling this road and drive safely.
RACQ’s most recent Unworthy Roads Survey has named a number of local Bundaberg roads as having poor quality surfaces, limited visibility, poor road shoulders and hazardous roadside objects. These roads include Gahans Road, Fairymead Road, Bundaberg-Lowmead Road, Cummins Road, Ten Mile Road and Woodward Road.
TOW advises all drivers to be aware of these poor road conditions when travelling these routes, and avoid serious car accidents and crashes by driving to suit their conditions.
Sugar Cane Season
Bundaberg is a major player in the local sugar industry, and during the sugar cane harvesting season in the second half of the year, drivers must share the roads with cane haul out trucks, b-double trucks and cane harvesters. Not only does this make the road conditions more dangerous for small vehicles travelling alongside them, but it also increases travel time as these large trucks drive very slowly. It is important that you make allowances for these changes when travelling your usual routes.
The harvesters and trucks operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during cane harvesting season and drivers must be aware that their large size affects how quickly they can stop and manoeuvre around other vehicles. Fatal crashes have occurred in the past involving cane harvesters and local drivers, and it is critical that during the cane harvesting season of July to November you always:
- Be patient and don’t overtake a slow moving truck until it is safe to do so
- Slow down when approaching the crest of a hill in sugar cane areas
- Approach cane railway crossings with caution, especially when visibility is limited
Bundaberg Black Spot Road Improvement Projects
As part of the national Black Spot Programme, the Federal Government has allocated $563,000 in funding towards improving 4 dangerous local roads in the Bundaberg region, to help reduce road trauma and save lives. These improvements will include:
Burnett Heads Road and Mittleheusers Road at Burnett Heads will receive $200 000 to realign the intersection to a staggered T-junction formation, and install right turn lanes.
Burnett Street and Targo Street at Bundaberg South will receive $180 000 to install medians with additional stop signs, kerb blisters and pram ramps, as well as upgrade line markings.
Elliott Heads Road and Hummock Road at Windermere will receive $105 000 to widen the approaches, install painted medians with raised reflective pavement markers, improve line markings and road signage, and upgrade lighting and culverts.
Windermere Road and Hummock Road at Windermere will receive $78 000 to also widen the approaches, install painted medians with raised reflective pavement markers, improve line markings and road signage, and upgrade lighting and culverts.
While these upgrades will make Bundaberg roads much safer for local drivers, we advise you to continue to drive safely along these routes and take extra care while the improvements are being made.
