    • Start date:
      01 Feb 2021
    • Duration:
      5 months
    • Related document:

    The Camp Flat Road widening and resealing project has been divided into five stages, from Bli Bli Road to Lake View Place.  Stage 5 will be constructed by Council with funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program in the 2020/2021 financial year.

    Stage 5 of the project starts after the Whitecross Road intersection and runs for approximately 625 metres to Lake View Place. Stage 5 involves the widening and resealing of the road, with the installation of a retaining wall along part of the road.   The remaining four stages (stages 1, 2, 3 and 4) will be constructed over multiple financial years, as funding becomes available. In the interim, until funding can be prioritised for these stages, safety initiatives will be installed.

    Residents are invited to attend Council’s community information session about this project on Wednesday, 2nd December 2020 at 5.00pm, at the Bli Bli Uniting Church, 8/10 Lefoes Rd, Bli Bli.

    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.

    • Duration:

    Council is constructing additional car parking at the Nambour Aquatic Centre Precinct and off Elder St.   The design provides 14 extra car parks by retrofitting the existing Aquatic Centre car park and creates a further 17 spaces off Elder St (see Figure 1 on page 2).

    It also includes a footpath from the bus drop off and the new Elder St car park to the existing stairs leading up to the Aquatic Centre car park, as well as landscaping.

    The need for this upgrade was identified in the Nambour Aquatic Centre Precinct Feasibility Study (2016). This project will provide a balance between creating new car parks and maximising the availability of recreational open space.

    This updates relates specifically to the carpark works, however there are other projects and construction works scheduled for the Nambour Aquatic Centre in the coming months.
