Light rail from Gold Coast to Tweed part of Future Transport strategy

You could be catching the Gold Coast’s light rail all the way across the border to Tweed Heads, under a new plan being considered by the NSW Government.

NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance was joined by Member for Tweed Geoff Provest today to make the announcement, saying it would be part of the NSW Government’s Future Transport strategy and a Tweed Heads Transport Network plan.

But it won’t be a simple task. With the light rail needing to cross the border between Queensland and New South Wales, the plan would require cooperation on many levels from both state governments as well as local government agencies.


It will also only be investigated after the G:Link’s Stage 3 has been completed, connecting the light rail to Coolangatta Airport.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said extending the light rail over the border was “vital for the community”.

“This project will deliver huge benefits for the Tweed and I look forward to seeing improved cross-border connections.”
