Noosa Parade Upgrade

Noosa Parade aerial imageNoosa Parade forms part of the SEQ Principal Cycle Network and is arguably one of Noosa’s busiest routes for pedestrian and cyclist activity. This activity is driven by its location within the tourist accommodation precinct and proximity to Hastings Street, Noosa Main Beach, and the Noosa National Park. Noosa Parade is a busy gateway into the Noosa Heads precinct at peak times.

The 1.2km major upgrade will provide improved and safer access for all road users by:

  • reducing the speed limit to 40km/h
  • providing dedicated and continuous on-road cycle lanes in both directions
  • upgrading the northern pathway to 2.5m wide and 3m wide where possible
  • upgrading the southern pathway to 1.5m wide
  • providing eight mid-block pedestrian refuges
  • installing improved LED lighting.

Work will also include enhanced landscaping and new trees that will provide extra shade and improve visual amenity.

Council is pleased to announce the Department of Transport and Main Roads awarded a $2.23m Cycling Network Local Government Grant to contribute up to 50% of construction.

Council’s project team are preparing the final layouts and drawings to show how the upgrade will look when it’s constructed, which will be available on this site once finalised.

Council looks forward to delivering an improved Noosa Parade that is safer for residents and all road users.
