Project description

The project will provide an assessment to identify deficiencies and upgrade needs in the Southern Sunshine Coast area to provide options for future road upgrades that will aim to improve safety, network resilience and efficiency. The project will also deliver business cases for two priority projects: Kawana Motorway – Mooloolah River Interchange to Kawana Way Link Road and Caloundra Road/Kawana Way Link Road/Bells Creek Arterial Road Intersection.


The projects considered in this study may provide the following benefits:

  • Improved safety
  • Reduced congestion
  • Reduced delays
  • Reduced reliance on the Bruce Highway for local trips
  • Improved network resilience
  • Improved active and public transport facilities


The Australian Government is contributing $5 million to the project.


 The study commenced in early 2021, with completion expected in late 2023.
