The state of Queensland, in partnership with the City of Gold Coast (CoGC), is preparing a detailed business case for Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3A (Broadbeach South light rail station and Burleigh Heads).
The preferred alignment for the proposed Stage 3A extension runs down the centre of the Gold Coast Highway for 6.7 kilometres with planning for up to eight stations. Station locations are indicative and have not been finalised.
The reference design for Stage 3A proposes:
– 6.7 kilometres in length
– Dual track in the centre of the Gold Coast Highway
– Planning for up to eight new stations
– A journey time of about 16 to 17 minutes.
Should the project progress to construction, it would take about two to three years to build Stage 3A. The detailed business case and reference design development will be complete by the end of 2018 for government consideration.
