Caloundra Road, Kawana Way Link Road and Bells Creek Arterial Road intersection planning
Options to improve safety and reduce congestion are being investigated at the Caloundra Road, Kawana Way Link Road and Bells Creek Arterial Road intersection in Caloundra.
The study proposes a two-stage upgrade. Planning will determine a longer-term upgrade solution to address future traffic demands. It will also identify a lower cost shorter-term (interim) solution to reduce congestion and improve travel times and safety at the existing intersection. The short-term solution will form part of the longer-term design. The business case forms part of the Southern Sunshine Coast Roads Improvement Study.
Key stakeholders and the community were engaged during the business case phase of planning. All feedback received will be considered as part of this process.
The planning of these upgrades will address rapid urban growth in new emerging communities south and west of Caloundra, including Caloundra South (Aura) and Palmview (Harmony). This intersection connects Kawana Way Link Road and Bells Creek Arterial Road, which are part of the future north-south, intra-regional Motorway connecting the Sunshine Motorway to the Bruce Highway at Roys Road interchange.
Design and construction of the project will be subject to future funding availability in consideration of competing priorities across the state.
