The future is bright. Gold Coast Light Rail (GCLR) has transformed public transport on the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3

Gold Coast Light Rail (GCLR) has transformed public transport on the Gold Coast. Stage 3 will extend light rail from Broadbeach South to Burleigh Heads. This network has been planned to be delivered in a number of stages and will expand the total Gold Coast tram network to 27 kilometres from Helensvale to Burleigh Heads, with 23 trams in operation.

John Holland is GoldlinQ’s chosen contractor to design and construct Gold Coast Light Rail (GCLR) Stage 3. 

GCLR has transformed public transport on the Gold Coast, and in November 2019 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. GCLR Stage 3 involves a 6.7km extension of the light rail system from Broadbeach South to Burleigh Heads, including eight new stations and the procurement of five additional light rail vehicles (LRVs).

Stage 3 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).
