Gold Coast Light Rail (GCLR) 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 2018-19 financial year public transport patronage on the Gold Coast has grown 47% since the introduction of light rail services in July 2014.
GCLR Stage 3 involves a 6.7km southern extension of the Gold Coast light rail system from Broadbeach South to Burleigh Heads, including eight new stations and the procurement of additional light rail vehicles (LRVs).
In November 2019 it was announced the $709 million Stage 3 extension to Burleigh Heads would be delivered with commitments of $269 million from the Australian Government and $91.5 million from City of Gold Coast, with the balance of funds committed by the Queensland Government.
On behalf of the Queensland Government, GoldlinQ is currently undertaking a competitive tender process to appoint a construction contractor in late 2020.
Construction of Stage 3 is set to support up to 760 jobs and will help the Gold Coast manage expected population growth in coming decades.
