Nicklin Way (SR6) is a major road in Sunshine Coast, Queensland. It is named after former Queensland Premier Frank Nicklin. It runs from the southern end of the Sunshine Motorway at Mooloolaba to Caloundra, with the route signed as state route 6. With the population of Sunshine Coast growing quickly, the road is often prone to congestion.
In recent times, development around the Nicklin Way, and new arterial roads linking those areas with the Sunshine Motorway at Sippy Downs has eased traffic.
Multi-Modal Transport Corridor (MMTC) project
Nicklin Way currently carries 54 000 vehicles per day (vpd) south of the Mooloolah River. This is estimated to grow to 75 000 vpd by 2016 and 90 000 vpd by 2026. Without another Mooloolah River crossing, Nicklin Way would require eight, then 10 lanes respectively. An alternative to widening Nicklin Way is the construction of the MMTC from Caloundra Road to the Sunshine Motorway. The MMTC was recognised in previous planning as an alternative north-south transport corridor. This will reduce congestion on Nicklin Way and provide opportunity for development of sustainable solutions such as active transport (trains, buses, cycling, walking).
