I am pleased to announce that work is underway to transform the northern precinct of the Mooloolaba foreshore into a new regional public parkland. This project will launch the revitalisation Mooloolaba Foreshore parklands, which was last significantly redeveloped in the mid-1990s. Stage 1 Northern Parkland is a joint initiative of Council and Queensland Government. The project supports our healthy lifestyle, with a new accessible boardwalk linking Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba. A viewing platform with seating will be constructed to allow users to experience the incredible sights, along with a sheltered barbecue area and a dedicated open space for the community to come together and connect with nature. When complete, the Northern Parkland will provide a wonderful destination for locals and visitors and will ensure Mooloolaba remains a competitive holiday destination. I would like to thank the local community and visitors for their understanding and patience while we build this essential upgrade for the future benefit of our Mooloolaba. More information about the project can be found on the project website www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/MFR.
Mooloolaba New Multi-Deck Car Park
Construction on the new Mooloolaba 700-space multi-deck car park is progressing as per scheduled. The new eight-storey car park is scheduled for completion in December 2020, weather and site conditions permitting. All spaces are intended to be available from opening date. The next few months of works will be extensive as we make the final push to the finish line. The works will include road works, service installations and streetscaping works on First Avenue, Smith Street and at the intersection of Muraban Street and Smith Street.
