Gold Coast Light Rail (GCLR) is an ambitious, city-changing infrastructure project that integrates new and existing transport systems, supports urban regeneration and facilitates sustainable transit-oriented development within a vibrant city. The $1.3 billion project created Queensland's first light rail system and was delivered under a Public Private Partnership (PPP).
Completed in 2014, McConnell Dowell was the main D&C contractor within GoldLinQ, the consortium contracted to finance, design, build, operate and maintain the network for 18 years.
The project has been recognised as one of the Top 10 most innovative urban mobility projects by Infrastructure 100: World Cities Edition.
