Stop the argy-bargy and deliver GC light rail extension: RACQ

RACQ has urged all levels of government to stop the political games and prioritise the Gold Coast light rail extension, after it was revealed the project, which would see trams all the way to Burleigh Heads, could be delayed.

The Gold Coast Bulletin reported the Light Rail Stage 3A project had been listed as under the ‘25-year horizon’ in the State Government’s State Infrastructure Plan.

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said the extension of the light rail network from Broadbeach to Burleigh Heads was one of the Club’s top public transport priorities.

“It’s time for funding agreements to be settled so we can start seeing construction and Gold Coast residents can start taking full advantage of light rail. This project will play a critical role in managing congestion which is something the community has been crying out for,” Ms Smith said.

“We know there’s demand for public transport services along the coast and residents shouldn’t have to wait any longer.

“What we need is for the political argy-bargy to stop, and all levels of government to work together to give Gold Coast residents the public transport they deserve.”
