Light rail route options on display
Light rail route options through Kawana, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore and Caloundra are now available for public consideration. Light rail is suggested as one component of an integrated transport strategy for the region that can also help deliver greater benefits to residents in the Hinterland as well as the built up coastal areas.
I am really enthusiastic about the potential benefits of light rail and encourage residents to learn more about the initial study findings as well as the proposed route options. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a say about the Sunshine Coast’s future—provide your thoughts and comments either in person, by mail or online at www.sclightrail.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
Access council’s transport service for $2 each way
If you are aged 60-and-over and have a disability or mobility impairment you may now be able to access Sunshine Coast Council’s Council Link transport service through ComLink. The service, funded through the Transport Levy, collects eligible residents from their home and drives them to their local shopping centre and return, for $2 each way.
For residents of Caloundra West and Little Mountain, the service operates to Stockland Caloundra, Caloundra Library or IGA on Tuesdays. Residents of Meridan Plains and surrounding areas can access the service to Currimundi Marketplace on Wednesdays.
To book the service, phone 5390 1288 by noon on Mondays. Further details about the schedule and other suburbs are available at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and search for “council link”.
