Steve Irwin Way intersection set for $2.5 million upgrade

Crews are ready to hit the ground running on the Palaszczuk Government’s $2.5 million Steve Irwin Way and Roys Road intersection upgrade.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said works would start next week on major resurfacing at the Beerwah intersection.

“The Palaszczuk Government is delivering more than $2.9 billion in roads and transport infrastructure for the Sunshine Coast and greater North Coast region over the next four years,” Mr Bailey said.

“This is a key intersection for the Beerwah community, providing access to the Bruce Highway, Woodford, Kilcoy and the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

“This upgrade will drive road safety for the thousands of motorists who use Steve Irwin Way each day, and will complement that $812.5 million Bruce Highway upgrade from Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway.”

Works will be completed between 6pm and 6am to minimise impacts to motorists and residents as much as possible.

Traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and road signs will be in place to ensure the safety of motorists and road workers.

Motorists should observe all signs when approaching the road works.
