About Mooloolaba transport corridor upgrade

Project scope

The Mooloolaba Transport Corridor Upgrade (MTCU) 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 completed project will also incorporate 232 new trees and 8850 plants to create a shady, cool and greener corridor.

Stages 1, 2 and 3 are complete. The final stage, Stage 4 will take place as staged construction. Early works will take place from March to June 2024. Construction timing of Stage 4 road works is yet to be determined

Stage 4 Brisbane Road upgrade (April 2024)

Works will be undertaken in two stages to minimise construction impacts to our community and local businesses.

The expected construction timeline is as follows. 

Early works (Stage 1)- Mayes Canal Bridge to Bindaree Crescent: Late April to August 2024*

 Some service relocations, demolition of Council owned buildings on the eastern side of Brisbane Road. 

The early works areas will be fenced off, with construction largely taking place on public land and away from the live traffic lanes on Brisbane Road. Traffic disruption is expected to be minimal.

Remaining works (Stage 2): TBC 

Brisbane Road, from Kyamba Court to Tuckers Creek bridge, will be upgraded and widened to four lanes. The upgrade includes a new signalised intersection at Bindaree Crescent, Brisbane Road, Woomba Place, new footpaths and landscaping works. 

The fourth southbound traffic lane of Mayes Canal bridge will open when Stage 4 roadworks are complete. 

Construction timing of Stage 4 road works is yet to be determined. We will continue to keep our community informed.
