Gold Coast Line

The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority is planning three new rail stations on the Gold Coast Line at Pimpama, Helensvale North and Merrimac to help connect South East Queensland’s growing population. These stations will feature:

  • onsite parking and passenger drop-off facilities
  • connections to pedestrian and cycle paths
  • integration with the current public transport network and
  • improvements to nearby intersections.

Community consultation on the concept designs has now closed.

Information regarding the next steps will be made available shortly.

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.
