THE most notorious intersection in Rocky has now been ranked as one of the worst the state.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads revealed the top ten serious crash hot spots in Queensland with an infamous Rockhampton intersection ranking at number nine.
RACQ revealed the intersection at Bolsover and Fitzroy Street has resulted in six serious crashes and claimed seven lives over a three-year period.
Spokesperson for RACQ Renee Smith said all levels of government needed to examine why these crashes were repeatedly occurring at the location
"We call on the Queensland Government and local authorities state-wide to prioritise them and invest in safety upgrades,” she said.
Among other locations included five in the Brisbane area but a Mackay intersection took out top spot.
Ms Smith said in the meantime, the onus was on motorists to navigate intersections safely.
"It's simple things like taking your time, giving way correctly, obeying traffic signals and signs and maintaining a safe following distance which can reduce the likelihood of crashes.”
