The consortium building the Gold Coast light rail network says planning is well advanced to accommodate the Surfers Paradise V8 event in October.
GoldLinQ CEO Phil Mumford says meetings are being held to discuss the handover of the site in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 600.
Mr Mumford says it is hoped the operation will run smoothly.
"We progressively give the V8 set-up organisers access to the site ... in the lead up to the race," he said.
"We won't be constructing in that adjacent area while the race is on, we will be vacating the site while the race occurs over that weekend and then progressively they'll hand the site back to us over the following weeks after the race is over."
Mr Mumford says the aim is for a smooth handover of the Surfers Paradise site.
"We will prepare the site for the V8s so that they can take over, run the race and then hand back to us so we can continue with the construction phase - so those plans are well in place," he said.
"I'm very confident that there'll be a seamless handover and that the race will be able to run as it normally does."
