The upcoming roadwork near the College is part of a $22 million project to improve access to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. These works will impact on pedestrian movement and will lead to some delays for motor vehicles. Construction is scheduled to commence from mid-October and will generally be undertaken Monday to Saturday between 7.00am and 5.00pm.

Temporary changes to pedestrian access will also be required for the duration of works. The pedestrian facilities on Kawana Way, near the intersection with Kawana Way Link Road, will be closed during daylight hours. Signage and fencing will be in place. The Department of Transport and Main Roads has advised that pedestrian diversions will be in place from Monday 17th October. Pedestrians will be required to detour from just north of the Currimundi Creek bridge on Kawana Way and travel east along the existing footpath behind the forested area, before re-joining Creekside Boulevard. A temporary pedestrian crossing will be installed with a refuge between the two lanes of traffic on Creekside Boulevard. Temporary signage will be installed in advance of the crossing to alert motorists to the changed pedestrian facilities. Motorists will also be required to reduce their speed limit to 40kmh. Pedestrian facilities will not be affected during the evenings. This is to ensure lit footpaths remain accessible outside of daylight hours. Pedestrian facilities are expected to return to normal for the start of the 2017 school year, weather and construction conditions permitting.
