The Most Dangerous Roads in Rockhampton

There are a number of roads in and around Rockhampton that are notorious for poor quality surfaces and high risk driving, which has resulted in many accidents and severe fatalities. TOW strongly advises that you always drive safely and adhere to the set speed limits, especially on these more dangerous routes. Be aware of other drivers sharing the road with you as well as the condition of the roads, and always drive to suit them.

The Bruce Highway is known for having several poor quality sections where drivers need to exercise extra care. The stretch from Miriam Vale to Rockhampton and from Rockhampton to St Lawrence are just 2 of these sections, identified as having a high level of both collective and individual risk for drivers. The number of casualty crashes is high, and still increasing every year.

Other dangerous roads in Rockhampton according to local residents includeQuay Street/Victoria Street, North Street,Berserker Street, Upper Dawson Road, Feez Street, Bolsover Street,Rockonia Street, Musgrave Street, Hollingsworth Street and the Farm Street and Yaamba Road intersection.

The Beef Roads

Rockhampton is one of the country’s largest cattle exporters and a major player in the Australian beef industry. In northern Australia, cattle are regularly transported hundreds of kilometres between the farm gate and the market, and the many poor quality roads are significantly increasing travel time and transport costs for farmers. It also becomes very dangerous when small vehicles have to share these roads with the large, much slower trucks and transport vehicles.

The Federal Government has pledged $100 million for the key cattle transportation roads in Rockhampton and the rest of northern Australia, as part of the Northern Australia Beef Roads Fund. The money will go towards improving the roads with targeted upgrades, to benefit both the cattle industry and other road users by increasing their quality and safety.

Other Planned Road Improvements

As part of a number of local road projects planned for the next few years, the intersection of Fitzroy Street and Bolsolver Street will be upgraded with traffic signals and turn arrows at all 4 entries to the intersection, to help prevent drivers from making ill-timed turns into oncoming traffic.

The Neville Hewitt Bridge will receive new signage to warn southbound drivers of congestion on the bridge ahead, which should help reduce the number of ‘nose-to-tail’ accidents.

18 additional local roads will have their gravel floodways replaced with more resilient concrete floodways to improve their quality and functionality during times of flooding. This will help to minimise road closures and traffic interruptions during and after heavy rainfall, and reduce the safety risks of driving on flood prone roads. These roads will include Upper Ulam Road, Joskeleigh Road, Collins Road , Bycroft Road, Hoys Road, Dunning Road, Hopkins Road,Old Byfield Road, Black Gin Creek Road, Wild Road, Weir Park Road,Leaholme Road, Manns Road, Venture Road, Flaherty Road, Kalapa-Black Mountain Road, San Jose Road and 2 sites on Smith Road.

These planned upgrades will make the roads in and around Rockhampton much safer for drivers, but we advise you to continue to take care and drive safely through these areas while the improvements are in progress.
