IPSWICH motorists want to see speed limits raised on some of the region's main roads.
A clear majority voted for increased speed limits as part of a wide community consultation process conducted by the State Government, which featured more than 3300 submissions.
People were given a list of 100 roads targeted for speed limit review across Queensland and were asked if they thought the current speed limits were too high or low.
A vast majority believed the speed limits needed to be increased on the Ipswich roads named in the survey.
A total of 87.5% of people said the limit was too low on the Cunningham Hwy between the Ipswich Mwy and Willowbank.
On the Ipswich Mwy between Grenard Rd to the Warrego Hwy, 93.7% said the speed limit was too low.
And every respondent wanted the speed limit to be increased on Junction Rd between Mt Crosby Rd and Arthur Sommerville Rd.
Despite the results, none of the roads has yet been approved to have the speed limits increased - but that may change in the next few months.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said the review was about creating safer roads and more consistent speed limits.
Following the review, each road is reviewed by engineers and police, in line with Queensland's speed limit guidelines, with consideration given to traffic, pedestrians and surrounding infrastructure.
