A new site has been identified for a speed awareness device in Burleigh Heads, located on Oyster Creek Drive approximately 500 metres from the intersection of the motorway. Subject to confirmation that there are no impacts for underground services, this site will be included in the program for future rotations.
There are going to be new 50km/h and 60km/h speed limit signs and pavement markings in Oyster Creek Drive. Other signs and pavement markings are also being upgraded.
It is hoped that these proposed changes will assist in raising driver awareness of their vehicle speeds in this area.
Old Coach Road Upgrade Stage 1 (North) – Kingsmore Boulevard to the former motocross track
Details of the works currently being constructed between the Kingsmore Boulevard roundabout (M1 Exit 85 off-ramp) and the former Reedy Creek motocross track can be found on the City projects page.
Subject to favourable weather and other conditions, construction is currently scheduled to be substantially completed by July 2020.
Old Coach Road upgrade Stages 2 and 3 (South and Central) – Bermuda Street to Tallebudgera Creek Road
Future stages of the Old Coach Road upgrade are in the early stages of planning. Provided that a preferred solution is endorsed by Council and funded, we will communicate details to the community. One of the options in contention is to extend Bermuda Street from the M1 Exit 87 interchange to Tallebudgera Creek Road in conjunction with the State Government’s upgrade of the M1 Pacific Motorway between Varsity Lakes and Tugun. The State Government’s upgrade of the M1 is expected to progress to construction before July 2023. The City’s draft four-year Road Infrastructure Program currently seeks to secure funding for the Old Coach Road upgrade and Bermuda Street extension projects to be completed by July 2024.
The latest information on the M1 upgrade can be found on the Queensland Government Department of Transport’s website.
The latest information on the Old Coach Road upgrade and Bermuda Street extension can be found in the City’s Road Network Plan 2018-2028.
I had the pleasure of hosting the Division 13 Divisional Donations 2019-20 Morning Tea recently. It is always wonderful to hear what all the different groups have been doing over the past year and what they have in store for the future. The Division 13 allocation of $50,000 was shared between 30 groups made up of schools, community groups and sporting clubs. A big thank you to the Lioness Club of Palm Beach Currumbin for providing the venue and catering a delicious morning tea.
You may have noticed that the footpath area around the Little Library and Public Noticeboard in Fifth Avenue has been updated.
Timber garden edging around the trees has been removed and replaced with black rubberised paving. The gardens have been infill planted and mulched and the planter pots have been repainted.
The Osprey nest at Mallawa Sports Complex has now been relocated to the nesting platform installed earlier this year.
The chicks fledged a few months ago so the nest was inactive and could therefore be moved. The lights on the sports fields, where the Ospreys had been nesting, can now be used again.
The following works will be carried out in Division 13 during January 2020.
|Sarawak Avenue, Palm Beach||Ramps – Disability Access Program|
