RAA is putting the call out for public feedback to identify the state's worst roads, following a horrific surge in road fatalities.

The organisation is hoping to repeat the success of its 2017 Risky Road survey, which had nearly 3000 nominations from the public.

In the years since, the state and local governments have spent $201 million and committed another $581m to fix 19 of the 22 most nominated roads and intersections identified in the survey, including $54m towards the Horrocks Highway.

RAA safety and infrastructure senior manager Charles Mountain said the survey helped identify and address problems with the road network.

"We invite people to nominate roads and intersections that they find difficult or confusing, poorly planned or performing, as well as risky and dangerous," he said.

"RAA wants everyone - whether they're a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian - to name anything they think is unsafe on our roads.

"This feedback is important to help RAA understand issues with the regional and metropolitan road network, and work with authorities to improve road performance and safety for all road users."

Mr Mountain said the survey could provide the opportunity to raise a range of concerns, such as the lack of signage on a particular street, potholes or the layout of intersections.

The survey closes on December 6.
