Sunshine Motorway (Mooloolaba – Peregian) Pacific Paradise to Coolum, planning
The department has commenced planning for the future duplication of the Sunshine Motorway, between David Low Way to just north of Yandina-Coolum Road, to help accommodate future growth and improve safety, connectivity and efficiency.
