Gold Coast Line

Cross River Rail is working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to plan and deliver three new stations at Pimpama, Helensvale North, and Merrimac/Worongary on the Gold Coast line.

Better connections with Gold Coast Light rail and suburban buses

Capacity for an extra 3,150 seats during morning peak

Direct line to new Brisbane stations including Boggo Road, Woolloongabba and Albert Street

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 SEQ 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.
