Sunshine Coast Council Duporth Avenue Ocean Street

Council is reminding motorists of the northbound lane closure on Maroochydore’s Duporth Avenue, while work is carried out to repair damaged concrete road pavement. Division 8 Councillor Jason OPray said the repairs were scheduled to be completed by the Easter school holidays and the opening of the refurbished Big Top.

“Council is repairing the pavers on Duporth Ave between Ocean St and the roundabout entrance to the Big Top shopping complex,” Cr OPray said.

“The new pavers will be more durable and will retain the current look which adds to the character of Duporth Ave.

“Council is committed to maintaining the roads across our region, and these repair works are part of our $111 million capital works program for 2014-15.”

Cr OPray thanked motorists for their patience during the seven week construction period.

“I know the reduction to one-way traffic has caused some inconvenience, but I’m sure all will agree it’s worth it to ensure this shared pedestrian and traffic area is safe for everyone.”

Large electronic signs are in place to direct traffic around the affected areas. Council informed nearby residents, businesses and the Maroochydore Revitalisation Association prior to work starting.
