The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has commenced planning for the upgrade of the Sunshine Motorway - Buderim-Mooloolaba Interchange to Maroochy Boulevard (BMI2MB) project in Maroochydore.

The Buderim-Mooloolaba Interchange operates under heavily congested conditions during weekday peak periods and is located in close proximity to the Maroochy Boulevard Interchange.

The BMI2MB project will:

  • improve safety, capacity and efficiency in the Maroochydore precinct
  • enhance transport network resilience
  • address community access and amenity issues with improved bicycle and pedestrian accessibility, connectivity and overall safety.

Planning for this project is constrained by a limited amount of available space due to adjacent property, existing infrastructure and the proximity of the Buderim-Mooloolaba and Maroochy Boulevard interchanges, as well as funding.

Have your say

TMR invited the community to have their say on the project. This feedback will help TMR understand community concerns, inform the planning for the BMI2MB project and be used to develop proposed upgrade options.

Submissions closed on 10 December 2021. Further consultation will be undertaken as planning progresses.
