Mooloolaba to Maroochydore Cycleway
Maroochydore cycleway seeks feedback

Design options for a 1.2km bike path between Mary Street at Alexandra Headland and Sixth Avenue in Maroochydore are now open for public feedback. 

This project is part of the ongoing larger delivery of the Mooloolaba to Maroochydore cycleway (M2M), which will be done over seven stages.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey told Sunshine Coast News the new designs reflected feedback from Sunshine Coast locals.

“We continue to listen to those using Sunshine Coast bikeways to understand what they want to see now, and in the future.

“The revised options for this Alexandra Headlands pathway respond to community requests for flexible pedestrian movements without fencing and other barriers, a wider shared path for all users, preservation of beachside parking, with enough adjoining grassed areas to unload cars, and retention of coastal dunes.

“Community members can now review the available options and deliver their feedback via a short survey.

“Community feedback will allow TMR to make informed decisions as we progress to the next phase of detailed design.”

Once complete, the 6km long Mooloolaba to Maroochydore cycleway will provide a safe, off-road connection for all active transport users. An off-road shared path facility will reduce the need for interaction between motorists and people riding bikes on roads. It will cater for people of all ages and abilities and integrate effectively with surrounding open space areas.

In 2020, TMR undertook an extensive 12-week consultation on Stage 6 of the cycleway, where over 1150 pieces of feedback were considered via the interactive map, submissions, emails and feedback forms.

In August 2021, TMR started a review of the proposed option for Stage 6 and worked collaboratively with the community on a revised community-focused design.

You can learn more and have your say on the current design plans via the TMR website. Consultation period closes 22 April, 2022.
