Removal of on-street parking – Pignata Road, Palmview

Removal of on-street parking – Pignata Road, Palmview

Dear Community,

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.

Local Artist creates VW Bonnet masterpiece for Vietnam Vets Fundraiser

Local Artist creates VW Bonnet masterpiece for Vietnam Vets Fundraiser

This amazing piece of artwork lovingly crafted onto the VW Bonnet pictured is made by Mieke Salna, a Sippy Downs, local mural/airbrush artist.

The image depicts the WWI landing in Gallipoli, Australians fighting in the jungle in Vietnam and on the right an Australian soldier from Afghanistan. The center the bonnet immortalises a WWI soldier and an Australian soldier from the Afghanistan conflict, with the modern soldier telling the old cobber “lets go home”.

This bonnet will soon make it’s reunion to the 1974 Volkswagon Beetle it came from which has been fully restored thanks to the initiative of Darroon Mathews. A lot of businesses have joined forces to help restore the Beetle for either a very reduced rate or sponsored parts. Darroon started this project with the beetle you see here above and will be very soon finished ready to be auctioned off. All proceeds will go to the Vietnam Veterans Association Maroochydore.  Darroon Matthews approached Mieke to paint this artwork as she was recommended by Kuston Paints in Woombey after they had seen some of my work on a helmet that she had done last year.

The artwork has been painted with Createx, Whicked and illustration colours. A photographer is coming to make pictures of it tomorrow and when the Beetle is all done it will be on display in the showroon at Cricks in Maroochydore.

   

The project creators are still looking to find $3500 which they hope to achieve through gofundme, these details you can find on the facebook page dedicated to this cause   at https://www.facebook.com/VWBeetleVietnamVets.
