Route options for light rail released
I am really pleased that the proposed Sunshine Coast light rail network is a hot topic of conversation at the moment. Release of the route options for the major growth hubs is generating lots of discussion in our communities, particularly in Kawana, where our community is experiencing significant growth and development.
The talk is not just about the light rail routes but also about the many associated lifestyle benefits and you can learn more about these by visiting the website at www.lightrail.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or by collecting a newsletter from your local council library or customer contact centre. If you have a chance, I encourage you to attend a community information session where you can discuss your thoughts directly with the project team.
Your feedback is important to the project. It will be used to help refine the route options and other aspects of the project for more detailed study. An online survey is available on the website or you can use the reply paid survey form at the back of the newsletter.
Access council’s transport service for $2 each way
A great service is available for residents aged 60-and-over with disability or mobility impairment. The Council Link transport service through ComLink is funded through Council’s Transport Levy. The service collects eligible residents from their home and drives them to their local shopping centre and return, for $2 each way.
For residents in Kawana, Birtinya, Buddina, Minyama, Mountain Creek, Parrearra and Warana the service operates to Kawana Shopping World on Tuesdays. For residents in Currimundi, Aroona, Battery Hill, Dicky Beach, Wurtulla and Meridan Plains the service operates to Currimundi Marketplace on Wednesdays.
To book the service, phone 5390 1288 by noon the day before your planned trip. Further details about the schedule and other suburbs are available at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and search for “council link”.
