The Worst Roads in Ipswich
As the state’s oldest colonial city and one of the fastest growing regions in South East Queensland, Ipswich seamlessly combines modern urbanisation and green open spaces with a heritage charm. The city is home to more than 177 000 residents and visitors all year round from the nearby major cities of Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It is a main urban centre, with the roads around the CBD and nearby areas getting steadily busier as the region continues to grow. Local roads have become notorious for congestion and car accidents, as more and more people are living and working in the area.
There are a number of particularly dangerous roads in and around Ipswich where crashes and accidents are common. We advise all drivers to take extra care on these roads, pay attention to other drivers and adhere to all speed limits.
The Warrego Highway from Ipswich to Toowoomba and the Cunningham Highway from Ipswich to Willowbank have been named in the Top 20 Worst State Roads and National Network Highways in the most recent Unworthy Roads Survey by RACQ.
Both highways have a very rough surface, poor shoulders and are prone to flooding, with frequent pot holes and surface damage caused by heavy vehicles.
These sections of the highways are rated high to medium-high risk for crashes involving casualties, due to the combination of busy roads, poor road surfaces and risky driving behaviour.
The survey also named a number of unworthy local roads in Ipswich including Redbank Plains Road, Harris Street,Claus Road, Bertha Street, Haigslea-Malabar Road, Dargie Avenue,Long Gully Road, Lobb Street, Jones Road, Moores Pocket Road, Ripley Road and Whitehill Road. Frequent problems are mentioned such as rough surfaces, narrow lanes, poor road shoulders, lack of visibility, poor drainage and prone to flooding. We recommend that you take special care when navigating these roads, because their low quality and surface problems can cause serious car accidents if you don’t drive to suit the conditions.
Brisbane Road is also notorious for crashes, especially in wet weather. Heavy traffic leads to drivers taking risks and driving dangerously to get through the congestion, which results in collisions or running off the road. We strongly advise you to drive safely on busy roads, and give yourself extra time to travel in heavy traffic.
The Black Spot Program
The Federal Government recently approved over $3.1 million to complete 4 projects on local Ipswich roads, through their Nation Building Black Spot Program to improve Queensland roads. These roads include:
The Edwards Street and Raceview Street intersection and Ripley Road in Flinders View will receive approximately $700 000 to install new traffic signals.
The Briggs Road and Cemetery Road intersection in Raceview will receive approximately $160 000 for phasing modifications, and to install overhead traffic signals and right turn lanes.
Wulkuraka Connection Road in Karrabin will receive $2 million to implement road safety audit recommendations including intersection widening, improving safety barriers, shoulder widening and the removal and relocation of roadside hazards along its 3km length.
The Jacaranda Street and Cook Street intersection in East Ipswich will receive $250 000 to install a right turn, kerb and channel works.
These upgrades will make the roads around Ipswich much safer for drivers and pedestrians, but we advise you to continue to take care when travelling in these areas while the improvements are being made.
