Council’s popular health and fitness program, Healthy Sunshine Coast, is back for 2021 for the whole community to enjoy with a variety of free and low cost activities on offer.

Many favourite classes will return including indoor and outdoor exercise sessions, group fitness, yoga and Zumba with more free activities and new classes in different locations including Mapleton, Nambour and Yandina. This is a dynamic program and will have new activities added regularly. Be sure to register for the program as bookings are essential for each class through the provider.

Nambour Connection Road pathway

In great news for Division 10, construction is nearing completion of the new Nambour Connection Rd pathway. It runs from the Coles Express (Shell Panorama) to Magnolia Street, Nambour near the Hilton Terrace Apartments.

I’m pleased to also share council is taking the initiative to work with local street artists to produce an attractive and appropriate decoration of the concrete barrier. Street art will be applied to both sides of the barrier and will provide a stylish entry to Nambour.

The pathway is approximately 950m long and varies in width between 1.8m and 2.5m. There are three sections of cantilevered walkway required by the steep slopes at the side of the road. A combination of concrete barrier and guardrail will be in place to protect pedestrians using the pathway. The pathway will also have LED lighting along its entire length. This is an important feature as this is a dark area under the trees and the large rock wall to the east of the road.

The project completes a missing pathway link and improves safety on the route between Nambour Christian College, the Nambour town centre and residential areas. It provides connectivity between residential populations from western suburbs of Nambour and the Nambour town centre, schools, sports facilities and employment precinct. 

Construction is scheduled to be completed this month, weather permitting.
