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.
Southern Sunshine Coast Roads Improvement Study
A study to identify road network connectivity improvements and safety improvements is underway to increase capacity on roads within the southern Sunshine Coast area to cater for the growing population.
The study will assess and identify deficiencies and upgrade needs in the southern Sunshine Coast area to provide options for future road upgrades that will aim to improve safety, network resilience and efficiency.
The study includes a detailed assessment of the roads in this area and how they connect with each other (Southern Sunshine Coast Roads Improvement Study) to help prioritise the order of future road network upgrades. The study will also deliver business cases for 2 priority projects:
- Kawana Motorway (Mooloolah River Interchange to Kawana Way Link Road)
- Caloundra Road, Kawana Way Link Road and Bells Creek Arterial Road intersection.
Key stakeholders and the community will be engaged during the business case phase of planning. All feedback received will be considered as part of this process.
Design and construction of the projects will be subject to future funding availability in consideration of competing statewide priorities.
