Keeping The Gold Coast
Light Rail Moving

Gold Coast Light Rail has transformed public transport on the Gold Coast, helping create an integrated multi-modal network that connects more people to more places in one of Australia’s most dynamic and fastest growing cities. As at the 2018-19 financial year, public transport patronage on the Gold Coast had grown 47 per cent since the introduction of light rail services in July 2014.

It was announced the Stage 3 extension to Burleigh Heads would be delivered with funding commitments from the Australian Government, City of Gold Coast and Queensland Government in November 2019. Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3 involves a 6.7km extension of the light rail system from Broadbeach south to Burleigh Heads, including eight new stations and five additional light rail vehicles (LRVs).

Construction of Stage 3 is set to deliver more than 760 jobs and will help the Gold Coast manage expected population growth in coming decades.

Stage 3 will expand the tram network to 27 kilometres from Helensvale to Burleigh Heads.

Gold Coast Light Rail is the largest transport infrastructure project ever undertaken on the Gold Coast and it was designed to be delivered in stages in response to the city’s forecast population growth. Following on from successful delivery and operation of Stages 1 and 2, the third stage of the project includes 6.7 km of new dual-track light rail running from Broadbeach South station to Burleigh Heads, eight new light rail stations and five additional light rail vehicles (LRVs).

It also includes an upgrade and expansion of the existing depot and stabling facilities, a new light rail-bus interchange at Burleigh Heads and Miami and supporting works and improvements, including signalised traffic intersections and upgrades, new signalised pedestrian crossings and upgraded pedestrian and cycle facilities.
