Noosa Parade Upgrade

Bellwether Contractors are pleased to have been named Principal Contractor for the iconic Noosa Parade project for Noosa Shire Council.

Noosa 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.

Construction of the 1.2km upgrade started in February 2022 and is scheduled to take approximately nine months to complete. Construction is planned to be completed prior to the famous Noosa Triathlon event scheduled for late October 2022.

The 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.
