The Worst Roads in Rockhampton City
Rockhampton ranks as the spot with the 10th highest number of road accidents in Queensland (out of the 78 local government areas assessed).
The most dangerous place to be in Rockhampton is on the road. In the last 13 years, roads within the Rockhampton and Livingstone council areas have claimed the lives of 138 people in 7156 accidents.
According to local drivers the worst Rockhampton streets to drive on are:
- Quay St/Victoria Parade
- Berserker Street
- North Street
- The Bruce Highway
- The Capricorn Highway
- Upper Dawson Road and
- Musgrave Street
Of these roads, the Bruce Highway has claimed 44 lives - almost one third of all the road fatalities in the Rockhampton region in the last 13 years. The Capricorn Highway was responsible for 14 deaths between 2001 and 2014, and the Rockhampton-Yeppoon road saw 16 deaths. The stretch of the Bruce Highway between Miriam Vale and Rockhampton is particularly dangerous and getting worse – with 164 casualty crashes on the road between 2000 and 2004 rising to 206 crashes between 2005 and 2009.
To ensure your safety on the roads in and around Rockhampton, it’s always a good idea to avoid these more hazardous routes whenever possible. It’s advisable to take the most precaution driving on the highways in and out of the city as their large amounts of traffic and high speed limits often contribute to traffic accidents.
If you ever need help on any of the roads in or around Rockhampton towing is available 24/7 with TOW.
