A happy median on Karawatha Drive
  • Monday 22 December 2014

There’s an attractive new look to Karawatha Drive in Buderim.

Sunshine Coast Council has completed landscaping works in the centre median at the entry of the Hibiscus Retirement Resort.

Division 6 Councillor Christian Dickson said the beautification works were carried out at the request of local residents.

“Residents within the Hibiscus Retirement Resort were very keen to improve the look of the centre median strip directly in front of their entry,” Cr Dickson said.

“I was only too happy to help fast-track this work by contributing divisional funding and as you can see we’ve achieved a great outcome that not only looks great but also ensures that visibility and safety on this section of Karawatha Drive isn’t compromised.”

A selection of low-maintenance plants, low ground covers and clear trunk trees were planted to provide clear visibility for turning vehicles. Replacement of rollover kerbs at the intersection was also carried out along with fresh line marking.
