Sydney’s worst roads and crash hot spots have been revealed, with the Hume Highway topping the list. 

Experts have used data from 340,000 crashes in the past financial year across Australia to identify the roads where motorists are most likely to crash.

The studies showed the Hume Highway, Victoria Road in West Ryde, Pennant Hills Road, Pacific Highway and Richmond Road to be the worst offenders.

“These hot spots are generally busy major arterial roads that intersect with local streets. When you combine this with heavy traffic and frequent stopping, it is a perfect recipe for vehicle collisions,” AAMI’s head of motor Anna Cartwright said.

Sydney’s crash hot spots:

  1. Hume Highway, Liverpool
  2. Victoria Road, West Ryde
  3. Pennant Hills Road, Pennant Hills
  4. Pacific Highway, Chatswood
  5. Richmond Road, Marsden Park
