Reporting roads needing repairs

You can help us to keep Queensland’s roads safe by letting us know when they need fixing.

When to report a road for repair

You can report a road for repair if:

  • it has potholes
  • its traffic lights do not work
  • parts of it are flooded
  • it has damaged or missing guardrails
  • lots of accidents occur on it.

How to report a road for repair

Major roads

If there is an urgent issue affecting traffic on a state-controlled road, phone us on 13 19 40 to report it. This is a Transport and Main Roads and RACQ statewide traffic and road condition reporting service.

If you are aware of a non-urgent issue with a state-controlled road, you can use our online form to report that it needs fixing.

State-controlled roads include:

  • motorways
  • highways
  • arterial roads
  • major connecting roads.

View the state road network maps of Queensland to check if a road is state-controlled.

Other roads and streets

All other roads and streets are locally controlled.

If there is an urgent issue with a locally controlled road or street in the Brisbane City Council area, phone 3403 8888 (24 hours, 7 days) to report it.

If you are aware of a non-urgent issue with a locally controlled road or street in the Brisbane City Council area, you can fill out the online form to report it.

Contact your local council to report locally controlled roads and streets—outside of Brisbane.
