Roys Road in Beerwah will be upgraded by Sunshine Coast Council as part of the sealed road program.
Division 1 Councillor Anna Grosskreutz said that the works will make this busy road a much safer one.
"I am pleased to announce this $650,000 project to widen Roys Road and resolve problems entering and exiting Moroney Place," Councillor Anna said.
The first stage will involve widening Roys Road to the east, adjacent to Steve Irwin Way, for approximately 440 metres towards Burys Road.
This section also includes improving the levels at the intersection in Moroney Place. This will alleviate the adverse dip that exists and leads to some vehicles scraping against the road surface.
The work will include widening of the pavement, resurfacing of the road, new kerb and channel near Moroney Place.
The project is programmed to start the week commencing 22 August, and completion is anticipated to take approximately twelve weeks (weather permitting).
During construction, access to Moroney Place and individual properties may be affected for short durations. Council officers will contact residents, where relevant, to discuss timing for access or parking if work is likely to block entrances.
"Your patience during construction is appreciated. Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists," Cr Anna said.
"I look forward to the successful completion of this project."
