MORE roundabouts could be the solution to Coolum's traffic snarls.

Coolum Business and Tourism president Noel Mooney touted the benefits of the new roundabout at Park St and David Low Way at the celebration of the recent completion of the Coolum streetscape project.

The roundabout was part of a $5.5 million project aimed at preserving elements that make Coolum unique.

Talks between Sunshine Coast Council and the State Government over the need to revamp the tired tourist strip fronting Tickle Park began in 2005.

The project included new road and drainage upgrades, wider footpaths, landscape planting, lighting and furniture, upgrade and relocation of Tickle Park car entry, resealing David Low Way and easier pedestrian crossing.

"We have been waiting for this for a long time and you have only got to look up and down the street to see how good it looks," Mr Mooney said.

"We have had to go through a bit of hassle to start with but we knew that was going to happen.

"We are all happy this was completed in time for Christmas."

Three public artworks by local artists John Fuller, Blair McNamara and Carl Holder will be installed in February.

Still to come are lighting at Coolum Beach Holiday Park and at the car park at Tickle Park.
