The existing Sunshine Motorway, Nicklin Way and Kawana Way transport infrastructure lacks capacity to accommodate forecast travel demand, resulting in significant congestion.
The proposal is investigating a range of roadworks in the area of the Mooloolah River Interchange of the Sunshine Motorway, including expanded lane connections, river crossings and intersection upgrades.
The project is expected to:
- improve safety by reducing crashes and weaving behaviours at the Mooloolah River Interchange
- increase capacity on the Sunshine Motorway between the Kawana Way interchange and the new Mooloolah River interchange
- provide better connectivity between the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Maroochydore, Kawana and Caloundra via a new Mooloolah River Crossing.
