The above updated fly-through of GCLR Stage 2 based on the current reference design and prepared by the Queensland Government.

The Project

Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2 is a proposed 7.3 kilometre light rail link between Parkwood and Helensvale. The City of Gold Coast has committed $55.1 million in funding while the Commonwealth Government has committed $95 million towards Stage 2.

The Queensland Government has announced a preferred route for Stage 2 that would run from Helensvale heavy rail station adjacent to the Gold Coast Line, then adjacent to the Smith Street Motorway to connect with Stage 1 at the Gold Coast University Hospital light rail station. TMR Link

This extension will provide a seamless connection with heavy rail, providing a world-class integrated public transport solution for residents and visitors. It will provide a one-transfer journey between the CBDs of Queensland’s two largest cities – Gold Coast and Brisbane.

In October 2015, GoldLinQ shortlisted 3 proponents and a Request for Tender phase is now underway. For more information about GoldLinQ or the procurement process visit www.gclrstage2.com.au.

Construction is expected to commence in April 2016 to ensure the light rail extension is delivered and operational prior to the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
