In a phone call this morning from a representative of the SCRC, BeCA was informed that Bellvista Blvd would be maintained rather than upgraded in the immediate future. This follows a request from BeCA that Bellvista Blvd be placed on a list for a major upgrade as a matter of urgency.
“Maintained” was described as for the road to be in a ‘safe’ condition for motorists.
As with many issues surrounding Bellvista right now, SCRC was waiting upon Federal Government approval of Caloundra South before any commitment was to be made on a major upgrade of Bellvista Blvd. This is a strategy so as not to expend any rate payer funds on a major project such as upgrading Bellvista Blvd in case Stockland is instructed to duplicate or upgrade Bellvista Blvd as a pre requisite to Caloundra South going ahead.
However some other issues may be addressed such as cutting back on growth on the eastern side of the road and SCRC has suggested that extra bollards may be installed to prevent traffic using the current pull-off section behind resident homes. No final decision has been made regarding a direct concrete pathway between Dumbarton Ave and Caloundra Rd.
However BeCA was notified that Balmoral Blvd was scheduled to be resurfaced in the near future.
