It appears Bellvista Blvd motorists will have even more to deal with if the current proposal to restructure the Bellvista Blvd Caloundra Rd Roundabout goes ahead. This could create even more problems for residents using Bellvista Blvd during school pick up and drop off times.
Traffic entering Bellvista Blvd from Berkey Place east (the small street crossing Bellvista Blvd just near the roundabout, also known as “Old Caloundra Rd”) and the caravan park there will be forced to turn left and travel south down Bellvista Blvd to the Dumbarton Drive Bellvista Blvd roundabout, complete a U-Turn and travel north along Bellvista Blvd to enter Caloundra Rd.
As the map above shows, there is to be a traffic island installed there blocking a right hand turn out of Berkey Place (east) to enter Caloundra Rd! The only option for these motorists is therefore to turn left!
During school pick-up times traffic can be blocked back across the Dumbarton Drive Bellvista Blvd roundabout. We could see the situation where both sides of Bellvista Blvd could be blocked if there are half a dozen vehicles leaving Berkey Place and being blocked from making their U-Turn at the roundabout!
