GoldLinQ understands the importance of having local people deliver the Gold Coast light rail and is committed to ensuring competitive local industry is given every opportunity to participate during the three year design and construction phase.
The Gold Coast light rail represents one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the region and will assist in developing short-term and long-term employment opportunities for local contractors and industries.
GoldLinQ will be focusing on blue collar recruitment in the first quarter of 2012. Companies can register their interest in the project on-line at the GoldLinQ Industry Capability Network registration portal www.goldcoastlightrail.icn.org.au.
GoldLinQ is currently hosting a number of integration and knowledge partnering programs with local TAFEs and Universities and is looking to adopt internships, work experience and other placement strategies for students. Stay tuned for further information.
The figures below demonstrate the level of local industry participation since GoldLinQ won the contract in June 2011 to deliver Queensland’s first light rail.
