Mooloolaba to have 5½ star hotel
Mooloolaba’s transformation into a world-class beach destination is progressing nicely. Recently, Aria Hotel gave a great presentation of their future plans for the area. This transformation will take time. Aria Hotel aims to starts construction in February 2019 in line with the Sunshine Coast Airport Expansion scheduled to open in 2020. All this contributes to making Mooloolaba an even more viable international tourist destination.

Maroochydore roadwork 
As work on Maud Street comes to an end and work on the intersections at Aerodrome Road begins, I would like to thank the community for their ongoing patience and understanding. This project will help with access to our new Maroochydore City Centre.  As part of this work, the short section of Cornmeal Parade from First Avenue to the Cornmeal Place car park will be closed to traffic from mid-May for approximately four weeks (weather permitting). The car park will be accessible via Horton Parade and/or Aerodrome Road.

It’s all happening in Kawana
Work is now complete on the new toilets inside the Kawana SLSC. Divisional funds contributed to this project and now includes wheelchair access, ambulant toilets and a parent’s room. As one project ends another begins, construction is about to start on a new amenities block next to the lifeguard tower. This project will also include the realignment of the Coastal Pathway.
