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:

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.
