In March 2016, CPB Contractors was announced as the preferred contractor to design and build the 7.3 kilometre extension in time for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
GRC provided tender phase measurement services for CPB’s successful bid, which was deemed to provide the best value for money by the Palaszczuk Government. GRC is currently providing design cost management services (remeasure assistance) throughout the various stages of design development.
The light rail extension will connect the existing light rail system at the Gold Coast University Hospital station to heavy rail at Helensvale station. Once built, Stage 02 will have the potential to carry 3,000 passengers per hour and provide an integrated public transport solution for the South-East Queensland community.
