Between the David Low Way and the National Park to the west there is an area of road reserve controlled by Noosa Council. This area varies in width but is generally about 4 to 5 meters.
Clearing part of this area would provide a fire break and a nature strip. In addition, it could support an off-road bike track as well as improving the vista of the National Park from DLW.
If we moved quickly, this change could possibly be funded with help from State and/or Federal funds for disaster recovery relating to the Peregian Beach fires.
A concrete bike track from the Coolum roundabout to the Peregian Beach Village is estimated to cost about $190,000 plus the cost of clearing.
What do you think of the idea? Please leave us a comment.
