Changes to roads due to up­grades

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

IM­POR­TANT traf­fic changes will hap­pen at the Caloun­dra Road In­ter­change as works ramp up to trans­form it into Aus­tralia’s first di­verg­ing di­a­mond In­ter­change.

Trans­port and Main Roads Re­gional Di­rec­tor Bar­bara van Heer­den said the ex­ist­ing right-turn lane at the Caloun­dra Road In­ter­change would be per­ma­nently closed from Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 21.

“This will im­pact mo­torists trav­el­ling from Steve Ir­win Way to the Bruce High­way south­bound,” Ms van Heer­den said.

“Mo­torists wish­ing to travel south­bound will need to seek an al­ter­nate route ei­ther via the Roys Road In­ter­change at Bells Creek or the Race­course Road In­ter­change on Caloun­dra Road.

“These routes will re­main as the al­ter­na­tive routes un­til the open­ing of a new ded­i­cated, free-flow­ing south­bound en­try ramp in late 2019, weather per­mit­ting.”

Ms van Heer­den said tem­po­rary traf­fic changes at the north­ern end of Steve Ir­win Way at Glen­view re­mained in ef­fect while a new in­ter­sec­tion was be­ing built.

“The west­bound lanes on Steve Ir­win Way are cur­rently closed with traf­fic flow be­ing main­tained us­ing the east­bound lanes, with one lane open in each di­rec­tion,” she said.

“The new in­ter­sec­tion will con­nect mo­torists to the new west­ern ser­vice road be­tween Glen­view and Sippy Downs.”
