Alleged drunk driver gets stuck on Gold Coast tram tracks

There’s been some early morning dramas on the Gold Coast tram line after an alleged drunk driver got stuck on the tracks.

Passing motorists noticed the silver ute lodged in the tracks on the Sundale Bridge just after 3am on Sunday.

Emergency services were called to the scene and worked to remove the vehicle.


TransLink confirmed the incident shut down trams between the Gold Coast University Hospital and Broadbeach South Station for a couple of hours but services have since been restored.

A 23-year-old man has been arrested for drink driving.
