This morning the Avid Property Group officially opened Peter Crosby way which is the brand new connection road into Harmony at Palmview.
It has been some 15 years since Palmview was originally envisaged and today marks one step closer to delivery of this brand new master planned community at the very Heart of the Sunshine Coast.
The Sippy Downs and district community association and the volunteers that have driven it along for the past 13 years played an integral part in ensuring that this development had the best possible balance with the least possible negative impact upon the Sippy Downs community.
Councillor Christian Dickson from Division 6, Sunshine Coast Council said of this brand new opening ” This is a fantastic new residential community right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast providing over 20 hectares open space for recreational purposes forming part of the total 100 hectares of open space for the community. This will serve as further community access areas for the existing Sippy Downs community and will provide many new road access points both North to the Sunshine Motorway and South to the Caloundra interchange at Caloundra Road and direct access to the Bruce Highway so in terms of Road access this is good for the community.”
The community association would like to thank have a property group for inviting us to attend and we look forward to forging strong relationships between the entire Palmview community and the Sippy Downs community as a whole.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads wishes to advise you of upcoming preliminary construction activities for the Bruce Highway Upgrade – Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway.
From 5.00am on Tuesday 18 April 2017
For the safety of motorists and construction workers, it will be necessary to remove on-street parking on a small section of Pignata Road as part of preliminary construction works. More detail of the ‘no parking zone’ is in the construction notice attached.
This will allow for construction to begin on a new car pool facility and work to occur on Pignata Road to provide safe access into and out of the facility.
Parking will be removed from the remainder of Pignata Road once the new car pool facility is opened to the public and construction work moves into these areas. Construction of the car pool facility is expected to take approximately six months to complete.
These no parking arrangements will remain in place until construction is completed in late 2020, weather permitting.
What else to expect:
Work in this area is expected to be undertaken
Monday to Friday, from 6am to 6pm.
As construction ramps up, the community should expect:
Increased construction traffic: The number of construction and heavy vehicles will increase on Pignata Road. Please take care when travelling on this road.
Audible noise: Audible noise from construction activities and heavy machinery can be expected.
Reversing beepers are a safety requirement and will be used at all times during work hours.
Changed traffic conditions: Reduced speed
limits will be in place in this area. Traffic
controllers will also be present at times during working hours.
(See PDF FLYER HERE) Preliminary construction is continuing on the Bruce Highway Upgrade – Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway in preparation for major construction to begin in mid-2017.
As part of preliminary construction activities, the location of underground services need to be confirmed so that detailed planning for construction can progress.
Pot holing techniques and a vacuum truck are typically used to locate, identify and confirm the depth of existing underground utilities.
Due to the proximity of the water main to the eastbound entry and exit ramps at Sippy Downs interchange, the ramps will need to be temporarily closed while service location works are undertaken.
Please note, access to and from Tanawha Tourist Drive will be maintained via the signalised intersection on the northern side of the Sippy Downs interchange during the ramp closure. The changed traffic conditions are shown on a map overleaf.
These service location works will be undertaken at night, from 8pm to 5am, to safeguard construction workers and motorists.
Works on the entry and exit ramps will commence on Sunday 9 April 2017 and are expected to be completed over two separate nights.
Please note this schedule is subject to change due to weather and other site conditions.
What to expect
• Temporary ramp closures: The eastbound entry and exit ramps at the Sippy Downs interchange will be closed to all road users over two separate nights to facilitate these works.
• Access: Access to and from Tanawha Tourist Drive will be maintained via the signalised intersection on the northern side of the Sippy Downs interchange.
• Audible noise: Audible noise from construction activities and heavy machinery can be expected.
Reversing beepers and flashing lights are a safety requirement and will be used at all times during work hours.
• Traffic control: Traffic control will be in place with reduced speed limits near the work zone. Motorists should expect short delays during these works.
