Stringybark Road Lighting
For those of you wondering about the recent road works occurring along Stringybark Road, I’m happy to say that we’ve finally seen the start of the long awaited street lighting project to improve safety along the pedestrian walkway. These new lights have recently been wired with new concrete pads established to act as footings for the new light posts. My next big project that I’m working hard on for 2018, is to fully upgrade the walkway and make it wider and safer to walk on. As always I’ll keep working hard and fighting for what we need in our Division.
Get ready to go explore!
A new tourist travel card has landed on the Sunshine Coast to help our holidaymakers move around our region. Council has been working with TransLink for some time to bring the benefits of the go explore card to our region. Having the go explore card allows unlimited daily travel on Sunshine Coast buses for just $10 per day for adults and $5 per day for children. With parking always at a premium over the holiday period, I encourage visitors and residents to use public transport as an alternative to taking your car. Cards are available from selected retailers including 7-Eleven stores and Night Owl stores, and can be topped up conveniently on the bus. To find a retailer, or for more information on public transport, visit translink.com.au/goexplore, download the MyTransLink app, or phone 13 12 30, anytime.
Be storm ready
When severe weather is approaching, flood waters are starting to rise or there’s another type of disaster on the Sunshine Coast, council aims to provide important alerts to the community as quickly as possible. That’s why council has made it even easier to get the alerts you need, straight to your phone or tablet, with its CoastAlert notification service. The push notifications, linked to information on council’s award-winning Disaster Hub website, are a new feature of council’s SCCApp. To receive the alerts, simply download the SCCApp from the AppStore or Google Play and emergency notifications will be automatically sent to your smartphone and any other mobile devices with the app installed.
