Temporary closure of a section of Sippy Downs Drive (between University Way and Siena Catholic College) and traffic detour via Service Road.
Dear Sippy Downs Residents and interested stakeholders.
Thank you for your ongoing patience regarding construction of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Project. We will soon be issuing another construction update which will include news of the construction break over the Christmas and New Year period and details regarding next year’s 2019 construction program.
In the interim and as part of the project, Council must dig trenches across Sippy Downs Drive to install stormwater pipes.
To safely undertake this work a section of Sippy Downs Drive, between University Way and Siena Catholic College, must be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for a period of one day, Saturday 24 November from 6 am – 5 pm (weather permitting).
On this day, light vehicle traffic will be redirected along the Sippy Downs Drive Service Road as one-way traffic. Buses and heavy vehicles will be detoured via an alternative route. University Way will remain open.
Please refer to the map below for more details.
The speed limit along the Service Road will be posted as 40 km per hour and signage and traffic control will help to redirect motorists.
The entry to Siena Catholic College will also be temporarily closed during this time. The project team thanks the School Principals and Parish Council for their assistance.
We thank you in advance for your understanding of these mandatory works and request that all motorists exercise additional caution when driving along the Service Road this Saturday.
Should you have any questions about this work, please feel free to contact us via the details below.
Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Team
For those who have been following the creation of the Sippy Downs Parks Masterplan, there were a number of fantastic outcomes for the community to be delivered as a result of the plan.
Some of these new upgrades for our area include playgrounds, shade sails, a new dog park, basketball courts and additional footpaths. These are just a few examples of the awesome new things coming to Sippy Downs. For a comprehensive understanding of the document please head over to https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Council/Planning-and-Projects/Council-Plans/Sippy-Downs-Parks-Master-Plan
I am jumping right in and delivering some great new footpaths to fill the missing links towards the ends of both Albany Street and Fitzwilliam Drive here in Sippy Downs. These new footpaths are fully funded and will be in place before the end of November 2018. Please see a copy of the project news releases below which detail the works occurring soon.
I’m really excited to be delivering on the promises I make to the local community and I’m extremely passionate about making our area a place we can be proud of.
