Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

A MA­JOR $19 mil­lion up­grade is about to start on a key, ar­te­rial Sun­shine Coast road, with de­lays ex­pected as speed lim­its are re­duced.

The ma­jor in­fras­truc­ture im­prove­ments are set to be­gin on Nick­lin Way, as part of the works re­quired to ser­vice Stock­land’s

$174 mil­lion Ocean­side Boka­rina Beach es­tate.

Works will be­gin this month on the road up­grades, to in­crease the ca­pac­ity of the sur­round­ing road net­work and en­sure ac­cess for the 2500-odd new res­i­dents.

New bridge cross­ings will be cre­ated on Nick­lin Way, with pedes­trian and cy­cle paths un­der­neath, while Lake Kawana it­self will be ex­tended into the Boka­rina Beach site, which is bor­dered by Beach Dr and Wur­ley Dr.

The Nick­lin Way-Lake Kawana Blvd in­ter­sec­tion will also be up­graded to cre­ate ac­cess to the Stock­land site, while an ad­di­tional south­bound lane and right-turn lane into Lake Kawana Blvd will be cre­ated.

Nick­lin Way will also have ded­i­cated bike lanes for lo­cal cy­clists.
