Major road project in Caloundra
Caloundra's attractiveness as a tourist destination and an amazing place to live is strongly tied to quality open spaces, great places to walk and ride and community facilities in the centre of the town. The central areas of Caloundra area should be protected, maintained and enhanced with quality to preserve the amenity of the town and encourage more trips to be made by walking and riding.
The existing Caloundra Corridor Upgrade Project proposes new roads through park space and widening of existing roads to 4-6 lanes, in an area and abundant in community facilities.
We petition the Council to consider the following alternative option for the project.
- A smaller scale road project that provides a maximum of two traffic lanes between intersections
- A maximum speed limit of 50km/h
- Low speed intersections, with single lane roundabouts with raised crossings for pedestrians
- High quality walking and cycling connections throughout the area.
