The Delivery Authority has awarded AGJV the contract to design and build Hope Island station.
AGJV is the head contractor delivering the Coomera Connector Stage 1 North package, located immediately adjacent to the Hope Island station. Integration and delivery of both projects under one contractor has been determined as the preferred delivery solution to reduce project interface risks including safety, construction and delivery timeframes.
The Delivery Authority will continue to work closely with the Coomera Connector Project Team, Department of Transport and Main Roads and City of Gold Coast Council throughout delivery to minimise impacts to residents and stakeholders.
Site establishment activities – Mangrove Jack Park
Vehicle access and car parking facilities at Mangrove Jack Park, off Hope Island Road, Helensvale, closed to the public in early 2023 to enable Acciona Georgiou Joint venture (AGJV) to establish a temporary site compound for Coomera Connector Stage 1 North.
This area of Mangrove Jack Park will also become part of the new Hope Island Station and will remain closed for the duration of construction.
Enabling works, including works within the rail corridor and site investigations such as geotechnical works, survey and utility identification activities are underway in preparation for the new Hope Island Station. These investigations will be used to further inform and refine the preliminary station design.
Benefits for Hope Island
Hope Island station will provide the local community with greater access to convenient rail services; expanding options for easy travel within the Gold Coast, as well as to Brisbane.
The new Hope Island station will include the following features:
2. Provision for future car park expansion
3. Future Coomera Connector project
4. Lighting and CCTV throughout car park and station
5. Six accessible car parks
6. Two through-lifts on each platform
7. Accessible kiss ‘n’ ride bays
8. Accessible taxi bays
9. Bus stops
10. Bus parking
12. Planned connection to local pedestrian and cycle paths
13. Existing pedestrian connections
14. Station building and ticketing
15. Stairs connecting entry level to platforms
16. New signalised intersection
17. Water overflow basin
18. Existing phone tower
19. Existing sewer station
In response to strong community feedback to increase parking capacity at Hope Island, the Delivery Authority and AGJV are investigating options to enable car parking expansion to be delivered as part of a staged approach.
The Hope Island station will be located next to Mangrove Jack Park, off Hope Island Road and is scheduled to be open in time for the first Cross River Rail services to the Gold Coast.
AGJV are in the process of developing the construction methodology and program of works for Hope Island station.
Enabling works, including in-corridor activities and site investigations, will continue throughout 2023.
Further surveying and investigations are being undertaken and these will also be used to further refine each of the station designs.
The community will be kept updated as the station design is finalised and will be notified of the construction program and activities well in advance of works commencing on site.
