The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) wishes to advise that the Nicklin Way capacity improvements and new Kawana Way access project is now complete.

Thank you for your patience while this project was delivered.

The project has improved access to and from the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, boosted the capacity of Nicklin Way for northbound motorists, improved safety and efficiency for all road users, and eased peak-hour congestion on Nicklin Way for southbound motorists.

Works involved:

·                providing an additional northbound traffic lane on Nicklin Way from just south of Main Drive to Waterview Street

·                improving traffic signals to allocate more green arrow time for motorists turning right from Nicklin Way into Main Drive

·                upgrading the Nicklin Way intersections with Main Drive and Waterview Street/Minkara Street to improve safety and efficiency for motorists and pedestrians

·                introducing new traffic signals and pedestrian crossings at the Nicklin Way intersection with Production Avenue

·                constructing a new dedicated on-road lane for northbound cyclists

·                extending Production Avenue to provide a new left-out access to Kawana Way

·                improving landscaping along various sections of Nicklin Way on behalf of Sunshine Coast Council.

The project was part of the Queensland Government’s $22 million works program under the State Infrastructure Plan to improve traffic flow in and around the Birtinya health precinct. In early 2017, four roundabouts were also upgraded on Kawana Way and additional lanes installed at the Kawana Way Link Road/Kawana Way intersection near Woodlands Boulevard.
