Gold Coast Light Rail
The first of the trams arrived in Brisbane last week by ship. The 14 trams are being purpose built in Germany and are the first in the world to have built in surfboard racks, they also feature the signature blue and gold colours of the Gold Coast.
The trams will begin being tested on the tram tracks from early October. Services are forecasted to begin in mid 2014 and will carry up to 309 passengers in air-conditioned comfort. The light rail corridor is 13km and will connect the new Gold Coast University Hospital and Griffith University to the retail and recreational centres of Southport, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. There are 16 stations on the route with one in Main Beach.
We will bring you updates as the opening of the goldlinQ light rail approaches. If you would like further information in the mean time visit goldlinQ.
