Cycle lane network extends in Noosa
  • Friday 05 July 2013

Sunshine Coast Council is committed to increasing the cycle lane network across the region.

Work will soon start on construction of an on-road cycle lane along Noosa Drive, along with cycle land improvements on Noosa Parade towards the Sheraton Bridge.

Division 11 Councillor Russell Green said the project was joint funded between council and the State Government under the South East Queensland Cycle Network Local Government Grants program.

“The State Government and council has provided $600,000 towards delivery of this project,” he said.

“As the Noosa region works towards a sustainable transport model it is vitally important we ensure adequate and safe facilities for those who choose to use bicycles as their preferred method of transport.

“The project will include construction of retaining walls near the Noosa Drive boardwalk area as well as the construction of kerb and channel adjustments, shoulder widening, line marking, green pavement treatments and road signage.”

Work is scheduled to start on July 15 and completion is anticipated within eight weeks (weather permitting). Some property access may be affected for short durations while works are in progress. Council will contact affected residents to discuss timing for access or parking if work is likely to block property entrances.

Traffic management measures will be in place while works are in progress to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists.
