Once again we have compiled a list of the worst offending roads (by number of reported crashes) over the last decade[i], this time focussing in on the Toowoomba region, to help you identify the road traffic accident black spots to be wary of when on the roads –
|1.||New England Highway, South Toowoomba/Cooyar/Kearneys Spring (1,153)|
|2.||Bridge Street, Toowoomba City (611)|
|3.||Gore Highway, Harristown/Westbrook (525)|
|4.||James Street, East Toowoomba/Toowoomba City (454)|
|5.||Alderly Street, South Toowoomba (355)|
|6.||Herries Street, Toowoomba City (323)|
|7.||Anzac Avenue, Newtown (311)|
|8.||Hume Street, South/East Toowoomba (287)|
|9.||Warrego Highway, Oakey/Kingsthorpe (260)|
|10.||Margaret Street, Toowoomba City (256)|
Unsurprisingly, the major highway, the New England Highway, takes out the top spot by a long way!
It could be of concern however to note that three high scoring roads, Bridge Street, James Street and Herries Street are all located in Toowoomba City!
