There has been a lot of speculation on what will become of the land bordering Claymore Road, Sippy Downs Drive and the existing Police Station property for quite some time.
Over the last few months as shown on the Sunshine Coast Council PD online DA Digital Management and Approval system an application has been lodged and progressing detailing what appears to be a brand new Caltex Service Centre and 3 fast food establishments with drive-thru facilities. This application is currently in progress and is currently presenting a “Not Determined” status via the Sunshine Coast Council’s PD Online web service.
At this time based on the information available via the PD online website it would appear two of the fast food outlets May include McDonald’s and KFC however this information is only based upon the visual imagery provided within the actual development application located in the link below.
With the recent approval and announcement of the Youii Headquarters commencing here in Sippy Downs and the upcoming Palmview Development located between Sippy Downs and the Bruce Highway on top of the current Coles construction this signifies yet another significant step forward in the ongoing development and refinement of Sippy Downs infrastructure and commercial construction.

SIPPY DOWNS & DISTRICT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION INC
27 August 2015
$907.2 MILLION OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FUNDING AT RISK
The alarming news from last night’s Sippy Downs & District Community Association’s public meeting was that $907.2 million could be lost if the Sunshine Coast community does not unite and support the Bruce Highway upgrade project – Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway.
New SDDCA President Peter Kinchin said, “Approximately 100 people attended the meeting last night and we were pleased to offer residents the opportunity to view a presentation on the Bruce Highway upgrade project by Amanda Yeates, Regional Director for North Coast and Wide Bay/Burnett, Department of Transport and Main Roads and the Project Director Gavin Soward. The presentation was very informative and included directional arrows for various travel route so that the audience could clearly understand the proposed new traffic flow.
“In addition to the presentation, residents had the opportunity to ask questions on the project to four senior Main Roads staff and also Federal Member for Fisher Mal Brough.”
The outgoing SDDCA president stated “What is deeply concerning is the current campaign to “Save the exit 190 ramps”. We would like to ensure that everyone understands that this project is a $1.134 billion project which is funded on an 80:20 basis. This equates to the federal government contributing $907.2 million. During a briefing on this project, the Department of Transport and Main Roads advised that federal government funding is contingent on the federal government identifying sufficient benefits to warrant the investment. The return of a 110km/hr speed limit will improve travel times and contribute to the overall benefits from the upgrade. Other key benefits include increase traffic capacity, road safety and bringing this section of the highway to the current standards. It would not be possible to achieve these benefits if all of the 190 ramps were to remain.”
Mal Brough, Federal Member for Fisher said: “It is essential that the community supports this initiative. The project represents significant infrastructure spend that will alleviate major traffic and safety issues. We must ensure that there is no reason for this funding to be lost or delayed.”
(Continuation of outgoing president’s report): The SDDCA is also concerned about information being circulated stating by the “Save Exit 190” Facebook group stating that the removal of the 190 ramps would generate traffic onto the local road network of Sippy Downs. The fact is, we have known for several years that the Palmview greenfield development was NEVER going to get direct access onto the national highway. The only way for the future 17000 residents to access the Bruce Highway without going through the streets of Sippy Downs is via a connection to the Western Service Road of the highway.
Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie said, “I have supported the SDDCA lobbying for a connection to the western service road and want to assure residents that this upgrade will not increase traffic through Sippy Downs from the future Palmview greenfield development.
(Continuation of outgoing president’s report): Mr Mr Blejie also raised the option of leaving one ramp out of the four 190 ramps open. That being the southbound entry ramp on the eastern side of the highway. For the benefit of businesses in the Aussie World precinct, the SDDCA supports the further investigation of this proposal providing:
- It meets the current safety standards of DTMR.
2. It would not place funding of this project in jeopardy.
3. It allows for the complete project delivery, including expansion to 6 lanes.|
4. It would not delay the connection to Palmview due to increased costs of construction or cause any impediment.
Mr Kinchin said, “Interestingly, only two questions from the floor relating to the project were asked, and both related to hydrology. As the presentation was so thorough and residents also heard of the project benefits from the Federal and State Members, Councillor and the SDDCA committee, it appears that no further questions were necessary. DTMR also provided details on ongoing community consultation.
“What is most concerning is the risk of having this $1.134 billion dollar project placed in jeopardy.”
