Pedestrians and bike riders travelling between Stumers Creek and Coolum State High School will soon enjoy a smoother journey. A section of pathway on the western side of David Low Way is scheduled to be resurfaced, starting in the week of June 19. It will be completed by the end of the month, weather permitting.
New public art
As part of the Sunshine Coast’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, local artists are adding some colour to several traffic boxes across the region. A traffic box on the corner of Yandina-Coolum Road and Barnes Lane has been brightened up by artist Frida Forsberg with artwork native birds and school students. I’m sure you’ll agree Frida has done a great job with this colourful addition to Coolum.
