Is there one road you hate to drive on more than any other? Where gridlocked traffic, dangerous roundabouts or a constant state of disrepair turn the journey into a recurring nightmare.
The NRMA’s fourth annual Seeing Red on Roads campaign gives motorists the opportunity to point out exactly where that road is and highlight the issues that need to be fixed.
Jump onto our interactive map and pinpoint the road, roundabout or intersection that gets you seeing red on a regular basis.
Members are already utilising Speak Out, our interactive advocacy platform that gives individuals and organisations the opportunity to suggest a campaign they’d like the NRMA to get behind.
Many of those suggestions highlight individual roads that require work to help make them a pleasant experience to drive on.
Other suggestions point to a larger issue, but stem from experiences in a driver’s regular commute.
One Speak Out Member suggested extending clearways beyond the usual hours to suit weekend and later evening congestion.
“The busiest roads in Sydney regions should have clearway hours extended to improve traffic flow,” one user wrote.
“I understand many local businesses will complain that this would cost them business, but how can the inconvenience to so many be ignored for the sake of a few?”
If you agree with this suggestion and are regularly caught up in bumper-to-bumper traffic at the same spot, pinpoint in on the interactive map and select the reasons that section of road annoys you.
Another Speak Out user suggested congestion on the Wakehurst Parkway could be eased by the construction of an overpass.
“This intersection causes so many peak hour delays. An overpass on either road would reduce travel times,” they wrote on Speak Out.
“Traffic is backed up every day in all directions and an overpass would solve all these problems.”
By dropping a pin on the Seeing Red on Roads map of the area you feel is the worst road in New South Wales, the NRMA can help in the fight to better roads across the state.
A recent funding boost in the federal budget saw $5.5 billion earmarked for road projects across the state, but NRMA President Kyle Loades said there was still a lot to be done to ensure those projects become a reality and Seeing Red on Roads was one way of keeping the government accountable.
“Following the Seeing Red on Roads campaigns over the past few years, we have seen some real progress from the NSW and Australian governments to upgrade some of the most dangerous sections of road in the State,” Mr Loades said.
“We also know that some of the most congested and dangerous areas on our roads are in suburban streets, intersections and roundabouts.”
It’s equally important to get an understanding of the rural and suburban roads that many of our Members drive on every day, so wherever you are in the state, get pinning and let us know about the road that makes you see red.
