    The Stage 5 - Camp Flat Road Upgrade project team would like to notify you that construction works will begin on Monday 15 February 2021. The project is expected to be finished in June 2021 (weather and site conditions permitting).

    Traffic management measures will be in place throughout the project to ensure the safety of all road users.   Delays will be kept to a minimum where possible, however some changes to traffic conditions are required to facilitate the safe and efficient delivery of this road upgrade project.   Temporary single lane and full road closures will be occurring during construction.

    Road closures increase safety for both workers and road users, while reducing construction time and cost.  Taking a detour is often quicker than waiting at traffic control points.

    There will be no through traffic during this time, please see figure 1 on page 2 for more information.  The detour will be via Yandina Bli Road or Parklands Drive/Thomas Road/Willis Road or Whitecross Road with traffic signage in place. During other construction activities, a single lane road closure will be occurring for through traffic along Camp Flat Road (as required).

    During construction, up-to-date information on road closures will be provided on electronic variable message (VMS) boards on Camp Flat Road and on Council’s website: roads.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

    • Start date:
      13 Jul 2020
    • Duration:
      10 weeks

    Sunshine Coast Council is committed to providing improvements to foreshore protection across the region and preserving our highly valued beaches. As a result of this Council has begun preparation for works opposite Leichardt Street to upgrade the degraded geobag groyne to a placed rock structure. This will enable better sand retention for this section of foreshore and a significantly longer asset lifespan.
    Groynes assist Council in maintaining erosion on beaches by interrupting sediment transport processes. Coupled with the current dredging, carried out yearly, it’s possible to deliver more resilent beaches by installing structures such as these.
