The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has commenced planning for a safe off-road active transport path for a 3.5 kilometre stretch of Caloundra Road from Kawana Way Link Road to the recently constructed active transport paths across the Bruce Highway.

The project will fill a missing link in the cycling network and provide direct connections to:

  • the path that heads north and parallel to the Bruce Highway (adjacent to Frizzo Connection Road) enabling connection to Sippy Downs and the University of the Sunshine Coast
  • the path heading south along Racecourse Road to the Sunshine Coast Industrial Park
  • paths at the Caloundra Road, Kawana Way Link Road and Bells Creek Arterial Road roundabout.

Planning will also consider future connections to Caloundra South, Sunshine Coast Council’s future Honey Farm Road Sport and Recreation Precinct, and an opportunity for a future path connection to the growth area of Palmview.

TMR has identified a preferred route for the off-road active transport path and welcomed your feedback.
