A series of Sunshine Coast Council infrastructure projects in Montville are making it safer and easier for residents and visitors to get around with a car park expansion, major pathway link and four pedestrian crossings all near the town’s centre.

Divisional councillor Jenny McKay joined residents and business representatives today to inspect new car parks and landscaping at Russell Family Park and a new 150m section pathway on Balmoral Road, which leads into the town.

Work is due to be completed on four raised pedestrian crossings – one upgraded and three new – within the coming weeks.

Councillor McKay said she had received positive feedback from the community about the improvements.

“Council has made it easier for people to visit the town and for our residents to walk around,” Cr McKay said.

“We now have an additional 125 car parks at Russell Family Park, 55 more than the previous gravel car park, as well extensive landscaping with 3,300 new trees, shrubs and tubestock groundcover plants.

“The pathway on Balmoral Road links to existing sections of pathway and makes a real difference to the residents who walk into town – it may be a small project, but it has been much anticipated, and I’m pleased we could deliver this for the Montville community.

“We know Montville is a place where people love to wander around and look in the shops, and the new crossings will make walking around the town centre easier and safer, as well as helping to slow traffic.”

The upgrades are part of council’s $370 million Capital Works Program.
