2014 RACV Redspot Survey


FRUSTRATED road users seeing ‘red’ over congestion are being urged to nominate the worst Redspots in this year’s Redspot Survey. The survey is held every two years by RACV, in conjunction with Leader Community Newspapers, to identify congested road locations across Victoria.

Slow steps are being made to remove some of Victoria’s most troublesome Redspots – but your support is necessary to ensure that the candidates in the November State Election take the issues seriously and follow through to see the Redspots eliminated.

Whether you are driving a motor vehicle, riding a bicycle or motorbike, driving or catching a bus or tram, or walking we want to hear from you about those congested road locations that make you frustrated.

RACV transport engineering experts will analyse the results and pass these onto VicRoads, local councils and Public Transport Victoria in an effort to fix the congestion issues raised.

Where will be the worst Redspots be in 2014? Have your say and nominate a Redspot.



Redspots Fixed

The public used the 2012 Redspot Survey to voice its frustration with the unremitting congestion, particularly at railway level crossings The State Government has committed over $800 million to eliminate some of the worst Redspots. Your voice really does count!

Funding announced in March 2014 will see the 2012 Survey’s number one (Murrumbeena Rd, Murrumbeena), four (Koornang Rd, Carnegie) and seven (Clayton Rd, Clayton) Redspots eliminated. Removing these notorious crossings will reduce congestion on nearby roads, slash travel times and improve bus, bicycle and pedestrian links – as well as improving safety for all train and road users.
