Benefits for the Gold Coast Line
Cross River Rail unlocks a bottleneck at the core of our rail network, allowing more trains to run more often across the whole of South East Queensland and creating capacity on the Gold Coast for:
- a train leaving for Brisbane as often as every 5 minutes on average in the morning peak on the Gold Coast line
- a train leaving for Brisbane every 15 minutes on average in the morning peak on the Beenleigh line (from Beenleigh station)
- fewer road users on the Pacific Motorway, with an estimated 47,000 more people across choosing rail over road by 2036.
