Planning and negotiating through a complex arterial road project - a successful approach

The planning study for Eenie Creek Arterial Road Stage 2 and 3 was a project that demanded a strategic 'best practice' approach to balance and integrate road/bridge requirements with conflicting residential and high conservation area land uses. Eenie Creek Road had been planned for 20 years. The road was identified as the east-west arterial transportation corridor that would accommodate traffic growth for the Noosa coastal area until 2016 and beyond. Road corridors had been established and incorporated in successive strategic planning documents. Main Roads had also planned for funding the project. However, the progressive introduction of the Environmental Protection Act 1994, the Nature Conservation Act 1992, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, declaration of Weyba Creek as a Fish Habitat Area, declaration of adjoining land as Noosa National Park and the encroachment of residential development potentially rendered the original corridor as unviable.
