Mooloolaba to Maroochydore cycleway, design cycleway

Transport and Main Roads is partnering with Sunshine Coast Council to deliver the Mooloolaba to Maroochydore cycleway which will provide a bike path connecting Mooloolaba to Maroochydore.

Once complete, the 6km long bike path will provide a safe, off-road connection for all active transport users. An off-road shared path facility will reduce the need for interaction between motorists and people riding bikes on roads. It will cater for people of all ages and abilities and integrate effectively with surrounding open space areas

The cycleway is being delivered over 7 stages as funding becomes available.

Benefits

  • Improves safety
  • Better active transport

Key features

  • 6km long separated bike path.

Current status

Revised options have been developed for Stage 6 of the project.

Community consultation was carried out for the revised options from 18 March to 22 April 2022.

Feedback received during this period is currently being evaluated and an update on the next steps will soon be provided.

We will update the community as planning and design activities progress.

We are continuing to work with Sunshine Coast Council to address the social, environmental and infrastructure planning considerations for future stages of the project.

Previous consultation

In 2020, we undertook extensive 12-week consultation on Stage 6 of the cycleway. Over the consultation period, the project team received over 1150 pieces of feedback via the interactive map, submissions, emails and feedback forms.

In August 2021, we started a review of the proposed option for Stage 6 and worked collaboratively with the community on a revised community-focused design.

Further consultation with the community, including key project stakeholders, local community groups and interest groups, was undertaken in 2021 to further inform the design for Stage 6 of the cycleway.

In 2022, we undertook a further 5-week consultation for a series of revised options for Stage 6 of the cycleway. This feedback is currently being evaluated and will inform what options are progressed to the next stage of design.
