Project info

In 2008, the Department of Transport and Main Roads completed a concept design for a future upgrade of the Sunshine Motorway. A further planning study for the Sunshine Motorway and Emu Mountain Road, between Pacific Paradise and Eumundi-Noosa Road, was completed in early 2018. The study considered predicted future traffic volumes and updated the 2008 concept design to incorporate current technical standards.

Key features and benefits of the future proposed upgrade include:

  • widening the existing road from 2 to 4 lanes, with provision for 6 lanes in the future (if required)
  • planning for 2 interchanges at Yandina-Coolum Road and Peregian Springs Drive/Murdering Creek Road
  • provision for possible future interchanges at West Coolum Road and Walter Hay Drive
  • provision for cyclists and pedestrians.

There is currently no funding allocated to progress towards construction of the upgrade. This work will be considered in the future, after assessment of competing priorities and depending on demand and funding availability.
