Procurement update

The Delivery Authority has engaged Acciona Georgiou Joint Venture (AGJV) in a collaborative Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) phase to enable a Design and Construction agreement to deliver Hope Island station. The ECI phase has commenced, and construction is planned to start in 2023.

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.

Site investigations including geotechnical works, survey and utility identification activities are underway in Mangrove Jack Park in preparation for the new Hope Island Station. These investigations will be used to further inform and refine the preliminary station design.

You can find out more information about these works here.

What’s Next

The Delivery Authority is currently out to market for a contractor to finalise the design and construct Hope Island station.

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

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.
