Repair work to start on Sunshine Motorway

Fiona Simpson - Member for Maroochydore

The Queensland Government is investing almost $1 million to repair the pavement on the Sunshine Motorway at Coolum Beach.
Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson said the upgrade would provide a smoother and safer road for motorists.
“The department received a lot of feedback about this section because the speed limit was lowered to ensure motorist safety after temporary repairs in June and July,” Ms Simpson said.
“Completion of these works will restore the road to its 100km/h speed limit and make it more durable and user-friendly.
“The project will involve removing the existing asphalt and pavement to make way for a new asphalt surface.
“Work on the section of motorway between the West Coolum Road overpass and Yandina roundabout will start in October and be finished within three weeks, weather permitting.”
Ms Simpson said motorists would still have access to the Sunshine Motorway during construction.
“The motorway provides a vital link for coast residents and work will be scheduled to minimise the impact on road users,” he said.
“Motorists are reminded to drive to the changed conditions and obey all signage for their own safety and the safety of road workers.
“I wish to thank motorists for their patience and cooperation while these works are underway.”
Work will be carried out between 7pm and 5.30am, Sunday nights to Friday mornings.
