Queensland's motorways are some of the most dangerous in Australia, the latest figures show.
Sections of the Pacific Motorway and Bruce Highway have some of the highest casualty crash levels of major roads, according to the Australian Road Assessment Program report.
RACQ, which released the report, said four of the 10 most dangerous sections of national highway were located in Queensland.
There were 23 deaths across three sections of the Pacific Motorway between 2010 and 2014, spokesman Paul Turner said.
"The number of people dying on the Pacific Motorway is truly frightening and we need the federal and state governments to deliver the upgrades needed to reduce this statistic," he said.
"We desperately need safety improvements on this motorway between the Gateway Motorway and the NSW border including funding for eight lanes in the northern section and six lanes in the southern section."
