Queensland's peak motoring body released a list of the 10 worst Queensland roads for serious crashes, with the Mount Lindesay Highway and Greenbank Road intersection ranked second.

Only the Kedron Park and Lutwyche road intersection in north Brisbane fared worse this year.

Work is currently underway to improve safety on the North Maclean section of the Mount Lindesay Highway.

A service road has been built closing the turn off onto St Aldwyn Road, and a traffic light will be installed on the dangerous Greenbank Road intersection.

The $20 million project is due for completion late this year.

RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross said poor driving behaviour were a major factor contributing to crashes on the North Maclean intersection.

"Looking at the Mount Lindesay Highway and Greenbank Road...the common theme is people simply aren't giving way correctly," she said.

"We're seeing more crashes in these areas as they're extremely busy and are often congested, creating extra issues for drivers to navigate."

Last year, RACQ identified the North Maclean intersection as the worst.

The Beaudesert Beenleigh Road and Mundoolun Connection Road intersection at Tamborine was also among the worst ten intersections in Queensland.
