Nautilus: Connecting Noosa, Nambour and Maroochydore

The Nautilus Study is exploring long-term public transport options for the northern part of the Sunshine Coast from 2026 onwards.
This study will enable the Queensland Government to plan ahead and be ready with the most efficient and sustainable solutions to meet the Sunshine Coast's public transport needs in the future.

Queensland Transport is working closely with the Sunshine Coast Regional Council, other state government agencies, industry and the community on the Nautilus Study.

Why are we doing the Nautilus Study?

The South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-26 forecasts the population on the Sunshine Coast to increase significantly from its current levels of about 275 000 people to 424 000 people by 2026.

This projected growth of more than 150 000 people will generate traffic demand of more than 500 000 trips every day.

Alternatives to private vehicles will be required in order to meet this traffic demand while maintaining the environment and lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast. Public transport will need to play a greater role along with effective cycling and walking networks.

The Nautilus Study is a key transport planning project that will uncover the sustainable transport solutions needed on the Sunshine Coast.

The long-term benefits of the Nautilus Study could include:

reduced traffic congestion
reduced travel times
improved transport safety
better access to places, utilities and services in the region
improved transport choices
job creation and economic growth on the Sunshine Coast.
Queensland Government is building a better future for south east Queensland by planning for the future infrastructure needs of Australia's fastest growing urban region.

What has been happening?

The Queensland Government invested $A6 million into the Nautilus Study over four years as part of South East Queensland Infrastructure Plan and Program 2005-26. This study comprises three phases and is due to report to Queensland Government with recommendations in 2009.  ...

Project Nautilus was sunk hey? 



Bit like the sinking of the Japanese destroyer Yamakaze on 25 June 1942 approximately 110 km southeast of Yokosuku, Japan, as photographed through the periscope of the U.S. Navy submarine USS Nautilus (SS-168).

Ha!   It is a very odd name for a project " Nautilus ".

Apart from the various marine vessels to have the name, there is the  genus (Nautilus) of cephalopod molluscs of the South Pacific and Indian oceans with a spiral chambered shell that is pearly on the inside ( https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nautilus ).

Nautilus was also the fictional submarine belonging to Captain Nemo featured in Jules Verne's novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and The Mysterious Island (1874). Verne named the Nautilus after Robert Fulton's real-life submarine Nautilus (1800). For the design of the Nautilus Verne was inspired by the French Navy submarine Plongeur, a model of which he had seen at the 1867 Exposition Universelle, three years before writing his novel.

So, I am not sure if the intent was to name the project ' Nautilus ' on the basis it was a work of fiction?  Perhaps it was ...   :-*

We know that a company called Bitzios Consulting undertook the Nautilus Stage 2b Public Transport Study. https://www.bitziosconsulting.com.au

Just a mention - not the study proper.

We know that someone called Kim Thomas, now the Managing Director of Integrate Pty Ltd (Intelligent Transport Solutions), in 2007-08 "project-managed the public transport network scoping study, which looked at public transport requirements of the northern Sunshine Coast region for 2026 to 2051. She managed multidisciplinary team including interstate teams and sub consultants."

Pity the study has 'disappeared'.
