Further rehabilitation works on the Maroochydore Road are due to start next month, Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson announced today.
Ms Simpson said that work is due to commence early April 2014 and is expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.
This $2.4 million project will involve replacing the existing asphalt surface with a new high-quality asphalt surface which will provide a safer, smoother surface for road users and reduce future maintenance costs.
The first section of works will be on the western side of the Sunshine Motorway from Jones Road (both carriageways) for a length of approximately 810m west to Kunda Park.
The second section of works will be on the eastern side of the Sunshine Motorway from the motorway to Main Road/Grieg Street (both carriageways).
“This section was identified as a high priority for works and will link the areas that have already had pavement works carried out.”
“The work on this section of the road was a more complex project requiring more detailed planning and surveying rather than the resurfacing work which has been carried out in other sections.”
To minimise daytime traffic disruptions, works will be carried out between 6pm and 6am, Sunday to Thursday. Further information will be provided to the community before construction begins.
