Asphalt resurfacing works starting this month (February 2022) will provide smoother surfaces along sections of Alexandra Parade and Maroochydore-Noosa Road.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Queensland Government was investing more than $4.5 million to improve sections of these roads as part of their commitment to delivering safer roads across the state.
“We are committed to maintaining and upgrading key transport infrastructure across the region,” Mr Bailey said.
“These works will improve the ageing surface and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.”
Mr Bailey said from late February 2022, crews would start resurfacing southbound on Maroochydore-Mooloolaba Road (locally known as Alexandra Parade).
“Works will take place from the Sixth Avenue intersection to Boolarong Crescent, Alexandra Headland,” Mr Bailey said.
“To reduce impacts on nearby businesses and residents, we’ve planned for these improvements to happen outside of the busy school holiday period.”
Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt said from mid-March, crews would also begin resurfacing about 2.3km of Maroochydore-Noosa Road (locally known as David Low Way), from the Sunshine Motorway/David Low Way Overpass to just before the Airport Drive intersection, Marcoola.
“Maroochydore-Noosa Road is an important route in the state road network and I’m sure the 17,000 motorists who travel this section daily will welcome the improvements.”
“Works will be carried out at night at both sites and some weekend work may be required.
“Motorists should expect delays with lane closures, detours and reduced speed limits.
“It is important for drivers to observe all signs when approaching the road works and adapt their driving behaviour to ensure their safety and the safety of our workers.
“The combined works are expected to take about three months to complete, weather and construction conditions permitting.
“Thank you to the community for its patience during these essential works.”
