Truckies have their say on country's worst roads

HUNTER Valley owner-operator Troy Thompson rated the Leichhardt Highway between Rockhampton and Goondiwindi "a nightmare” to travel along.

We put a call out on Facebook to see what other roads Big Rigs followers thought were just as bad... or worse.

Jim Lord: Leichhardt Hwy hands down.

Dini Mercieca: The Hume, trees up the centre instead of sand. How many times have you heard that another person has had a health episode and come crashing through those stupid scrubby trees and killed people travelling at 100 klms per hour in the opposite direction?

Christopher 'Spike' Stokes: Be a toss up between the western between Ballarat and the border and the Cunningham between Warwick and Gundy. There are a couple of good stretches on the Newell too. Oh, that amazing run from Wyalong across to Hay.

Stelios Papoutsidis: Try Princes Hwy between Bairnsdale and Nowra.

Daniel George Legge: The Tablelands Highway NT.

Greg Watt: Mt Lindsay Highway.
