I’m proud that we’re delivering this key infrastructure project that will improve traffic flow, safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, reduce delays during peak periods and cater for future growth in Mooloolaba. Stages 1B involves widening of Walan Street, between Venning and Smith streets to four traffic lanes and is expected to be completed by late 2020, weather permitting. As part of the upgrade, a temporary road closure is required between Venning and Smith streets so that extensive road works can be undertaken safely and efficiently. From August 17 until the end of November, Walan Street will be closed to through traffic between Smith and Venning streets. Businesses along Walan Street will remain open with local traffic permitted. Follow the alternative route and you’ll easily avoid works. I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during the upgrade of Walan Street. If you want to learn more about the project or see the alternative route visit the project’s webpage.
Essential roadworks underway in Maroochydore
Motorists will soon enjoy smoother and safer travels on Cotton Tree Parade and The Esplanade in Maroochydore. Cotton Tree Parade and The Esplanade is a heavily used stretch of road for residents, businesses and visitors and I’m very pleased that these important works will be delivered to provide an enhanced experience for everyone who travels through this area. The roadworks are scheduled to be completed in late August ahead of the busy September school holiday period. Traffic management measures will be in place while these works are in progress.
