RACQ experts will tour the Darling Downs from today as part of the motoring body's regional roads inspection program, which aims to create a safer and more efficient road network.

RACQ senior traffic and safety engineer Greg Miszkowycz will examine several major highways throughout the region.

Mr Miszkowycz said the club carried out the inspections each year to gain a better understanding of the condition of the state's regional highways, which helps RACQ when lobbying government for funding and repair works.

"This year's inspection is perhaps even more important than previous years because we'll be able to gauge just how far the flood recovery effort has come," Mr Miszkowycz said.

The inspection tour will cover more than 750km over the two days, taking in Warwick to Goondiwindi, using the Cunningham Hwy and Goondiwindi to Toowoomba, using the Leichhardt and Gore Hwys.

"We're interested to see where the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements funding has been invested and where improvements to the quality and safety of the highway are still required," Mr Miszkowycz said.
