Construction work is starting soon to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians at the busy intersection with Pacific Terrace and Mooloolaba Road (also known as Buderim Ave).
The new traffic lights and signal-controlled pedestrian crossings will make it easier and safer for motorists to exit Pacific Terrace and for pedestrians to safety cross this busy road.
The $1.5 million project includes a dedicated right-turn lane from Mooloolaba Road into Pacific Terrace and will include two signal-controlled pedestrian crossings, upgrades to street lighting and changes to on-street parking along Mooloolaba Road.
I have advocated on behalf of local residents for this upgrade in response to concerns about the high crash rate and the need for a safe place to cross the road and was delighted to announce last year that funding was provided by the LNP Government.
Construction is due to commence on November 2 and is expected to take approximately two months to complete, weather permitting.
Works will generally be undertaken between Monday and Friday, from 6am to 5pm, although some night works will take place to mitigate delays during these times.
Road closures will be in effect for Pacific Terrace and Camfield Street for a period of up to 6 weeks with a detour via Mooloolaba Road and Alexandra Parade.
