It's about to get a whole lot easier and safer for pedestrians accessing the Nicklin Way from Currimundi.

Sunshine Coast Council will soon start work to construct a 1.8m wide concrete pathway stretching about 800m along Coora Cres, Mirnoo and Farlow Sts.

Division 3 Councillor Peter Cox said the works would provide local residents with safe, all-weather access to Nicklin Way.

“Council is committed to improving pathway networks across our region and this particular project will certainly make it much safer and easier for residents across a large part of Currimundi to walk or ride their bikes to and from Nicklin Way,” Cr Cox said.

“The pathway will enable pedestrians and cyclists to walk or ride away from the road and provide them with a safe and functional travel route that will be comfortable to access no matter what the weather conditions are.

“Like all pathways in Queensland, this one will be shared between pedestrians, cyclists and other wheelded devices so everyone using it should keep left and give way to pedestrians.

"You can find out more information about this on council’s website under ‘Road Safety’”.

Work on the new pathway is scheduled to start on the week starting October 27 and completion is expected within five weeks (weather permitting).

Council will endeavour to avoid disturbing large and established trees where possible.

Council will contact residents whose property access may be affected during construction, to discuss timing for access and parking.

Traffic management measures will be in place while works are in progress.
