New Gold Coast Stations

Cross River Rail is transforming the way we travel across all of South East Queensland. The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority is continuing with planning and delivery of three new rail stations on the Gold Coast Line to help connect South East Queensland’s growing population. Stations are being planned for Pimpama, Hope Island and Merrimac

The new stations will feature:

  • onsite parking and passenger drop-off facilities
  • connections to pedestrian and cycle paths
  • accessible features such as parking, wayfinding signage and platform access
  • integration with the current public transport network and improvements to nearby intersections
  • Lighting and CCTV throughout the car park and station

Current status

Procurement for major construction contractors

Delivery of the New Gold Coast Stations is being undertaken as a program of works. Procurement activities for contractors to finalise designs and construct each of the stations is currently underway. For an update on the procurement status for each of the stations, please visit the webpages below.

What’s next?

Further studies are being undertaken across all three sites including traffic management, hydrology, noise and environment assessments to further refine and finalise the design in preparation for construction.

Feedback from the community and key stakeholders is being used to inform the final designs. The community will be kept updated as the station design is finalised and will be notified of the construction program and activities in advance of works commencing on site.
