Council is improving connectivity and travel choices in the heart of Mooloolaba. This important transport project will see the widening of Brisbane Road and Walan Street from two to four traffic lanes.
In addition to improving traffic flow, this important project will enhance the southern entrance into Mooloolaba and create a corridor that is integrated and inviting for pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and public transport users. This is one of many Mooloolaba infrastructure projects council is investing in to create a world-class destination for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The Mooloolaba Transport Corridor Upgrade is being delivered in four stages over several years.
It will improve safety and traffic flow, reduce delays during peak periods and cater for future traffic growth in Mooloolaba. The 234 new trees and 11,326 plants will create a shady, cool and greener corridor.
The construction team is delivering the second and third stages of the Mooloolaba Transport Corridor Upgrade concurrently between May 2021 and early 2023.
The final stage, Stage Four is currently scheduled for 2023, subject to the appointment of a construction contractor.

Project news and updates
Public consultation for the Brisbane Road Upgrade began in 2003 as part of the Mooloolaba Integrated Land Use and Transport Assessment Study and involved a community forum and feedback analysis. Public participation indicated an understanding of the need for future transport planning and broad community support for the corridor upgrade.
An extensive community engagement process was also undertaken during the development of the Placemaking Mooloolaba Master Plan which was adopted by council in December 2015. The master plan recognised the widening of Brisbane Road and Walan Street as a key project.
Recently, the project team engaged with the local community and interested parties through newsletters, media releases and council’s project webpage. Council will continue to keep the community informed throughout the project.
