New pathway provides peace of mind for pedestrians
  • Thursday 24 May 2012

Developing safe and sustainable transport infrastructure projects is a key aim for Sunshine Coast Council as part of its ongoing commitment to improving safety, lifestyle and the environment.

A new pedestrian and cycle pathway has been constructed along Main Road, Maroochydore, providing a new link with the existing pathway on the Sunshine Motorway.

Division 8 Councillor Jason O’Pray said the $137,653 project included widening of the pathway on Main Street to 2.5 metres and modification of the crossing access at Arwen Street to allow safer crossing to the bus stop on Main Road in front of Regents Landing.

"Council is committed to upgrading the pathway networks and connectivity across the region," he said.

"These works along Main Road will enable safer and easier travels for pedestrians and I commend council for delivering the project on time and on budget."

Did you know that all pathways in Queensland are shared between cyclists, pedestrians and other wheeled devices (unless otherwise signed)? Everyone should keep left, keep the path clear and give way to pedestrians. For further information about sharing pathways, visit council’s website.
