Construction companies can now tender for the multi-million dollar upgrade of Nicklin Way between Main Drive and Waterview Street on the Sunshine Coast.
Three intersections at Main Drive, Production Avenue and Waterview Street will be upgraded.
The upgrade will include the addition of a third northbound lane on Nicklin Way from Main Drive through to Waterview Street and a left-out turn lane from Production Avenue and Technology Drive to Kawana Way.
Four roundabouts on Kawana Way at Jamaica Way, Kawana Island Boulevard, Premier Circuit and Metier Linkway have already been upgraded as part of a $22 million program.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Queensland Government was funding the infrastructure upgrade to boost the capacity of Nicklin Way and improve access to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
“The upgrade will improve intersection safety and efficiency as well as provide a quicker and more reliable journey for motorists travelling between Main Drive and Waterview Street,” he said.
Mr. Bailey said the contract for the project is expected to be announced mid-year and construction is expected to start mid to late 2018.
