The project will deliver a range of upgrades to Sunshine Motorway at Mountain Creek to provide an improved Mooloolah River Interchange. The preferred option includes:
- a major upgrade to the Mooloolah River Interchange and existing connections to the Sunshine Motorway east-west and north-south links, and Nicklin Way
- a new road connection across the Mooloolah River connecting the upgraded interchange with Kawana Way at Parrearra
- upgrading the Sunshine Motorway from the Mooloolah River interchange to Kawana Way from two to four lanes, and
- new local road links including a direct connection for northbound traffic on Nicklin Way to Brisbane Road in Mooloolaba, and a new link between Karawatha Drive in Mountain Creek and Brisbane Road.
The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is preserving a preferred alignment for the proposed road corridor.
