Sippy Downs Drive upgrade benefits more than 9000 drivers daily
More than 9000 people have a smoother journey to school and university each day, thanks to completion of Sunshine Coast Council’s latest upgrade to Sippy Downs Drive.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the recent $3.2 million upgrade would improve travel in the area now and in the future when the Sippy Downs Town Centre is complete.
“The Sippy Downs Town Centre will stimulate the local economy and this upgrade will make it easier for locals – and the growing number of university students – to access the area,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“The new cycle lanes and footpaths will make things more convenient for cyclists and pedestrians, which will hopefully encourage residents to leave their cars at home.
“Delivering infrastructure which facilitates active transport helps Sunshine Coast Council reach our goal of becoming Australia’s most sustainable region.”
