Travelling by car or by foot in Kenilworth will soon be safer and easier.
Sunshine Coast Council is set to construct new sections of footpath and a new disabled car park. Division 10 Councillor Paul Tatton said the works would take place in three locations.
"We will construct a 15m x 2m section of pathway on Charles Street, west of Elizabeth Street along with a 40m x 2m stretch of pathway on Charles Street, east of Elizabeth Street," he said.
"Council will also construct a new disability car park in the main street along with a 30m x 1.8m extension of the existing pathway along Elizabeth Street, near the intersection of Eumundi – Kenilworth Road."
"These pathway projects will enable safer and easier transport around Kenilworth and will also enhance the appearance of the streetscape."
"Some trees will need to be removed as part of these pathway projects however council will offset this by replanting vegetation."
Works will begin on 27 June (weather permitting) and are expected to take three weeks to complete.
