    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.

    During construction of the retaining wall, a full road closure at 115 – 117 Camp Flat Road will be occurring from Monday 1 March to Friday 26 March 2021.

    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.
