Mooloolaba to Maroochydore cycleway

Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and Sunshine Coast Council (SCC) are partnering to deliver the Mooloolaba to Maroochydore (M2M) cycleway, which will provide a separated cycleway connecting Mooloolaba to Maroochydore.

A dedicated cycle facility (with a separated pathway) will reduce the need for interaction between motorists and people riding bikes on roads. It will also reduce interaction between active transport users and pedestrians on the existing footpaths, improving safety, comfort and travel time for all users.

Location:

From the Sunshine Motorway near the Mooloolah River, through Mooloolaba to the new Maroochydore City Centre at Maude Street in Maroochydore.

Benefits:

The M2M cycleway will deliver a number of benefits including:

  • increased road safety 
  • increased safety for bike riders and pedestrians 
  • increased cycling movements 
  • improved health and lifestyle for the local community
  • reduced parking demand
  • reduced traffic demand
  • increased tourism opportunities.

Funding:

The M2M cycleway is being delivered over 7 stages as funding becomes available. The Queensland Government has allocated $6.7 million for delivery of a 1.2km section of the project on Alexandra Parade from Mary Street at Alexandra Headland to Sixth Avenue at Maroochydore  (Stage 6).

Regions:
North Coast and Wide Bay-Burnett Region - North Coast District
