Take a few seconds and familiarize yourself with the map. You should be able to locate the two lakes in the centre of Canavan Gracie Recreational Reserve, that most of Bells Reach and Arbour look blank and empty in the map, and find where Bellvista Blvd meets Caloundra Rd (the top end of the turquoise colored road).
The turquoise colored road is Bellvista Blvd. In the map it goes all the way south through Arbor and to where the bridge is currently under construction crossing the Lamerough Creek.
The red colored road is the Bells Creek Arterial, Stage 1 currently under construction and expected to be completed late 2016.
The orange colored road will be the interim connection road between the end of Bellvista Blvd and Bells Creek Arterial Stage 1 until the larger Bells Creek Arterial Stage 2 (the green section) is completed.
No new homes in Aura (Caloundra South) can be occupied until the red and orange sections have been completed and connected to the southern end of the turquoise colored Bellvista Blvd.
BeCA is currently lobbying for a connecting road from where the orange and turquoise roads meet, across to Pelican Waters Blvd. This road is in state government plans but it is not expected to be built for another 12 years or so. BeCA believes bringing forward the construction of this road would provide some relief to traffic congestion along Bellvista Blvd and Caloundra Rd.
The yellow spot DC just near the orange oval sign “Internal Connection Road” indicates where a shopping centre (or District Centre) approximately the size of the current Currimundi Shopping Centre will be built.
The green spot marked NS (and near the DC spot) are the sites for two new state schools, one is expected to be primary, the other secondary. 2018 is mooted as a possible opening date for a P-6 school.

The 32 million dollars referred to by Mal Brough at a recent “Listening Post Forum” meeting at the Bellvista Meeting Place was Federal funding to bring forward the construction of the purple section of Bells Creek Arterial to ‘ASAP’ rather than wait for Stockland to build it in stages. A possible road completion date would be sometime after 2026. Federal funding would be available as this road would remove some traffic from the Bruce Highway. The Bruce Highway is a Federal Government responsibility.
With BeCA’s proposal of a Pelican Waters/Bellvista Blvd link road and the completion of the Bells Creek Arterial residents would see the completion of a new East/West corridor connection for the fast growing southern end of the Sunshine Coast. A new East/West corridor road would relieve traffic not only along Caloundra Rd, but some sections of the Bruce Highway as well.
