The carriages, which can carry up to 309 passengers, arrived from Europe yesterday and were expected to begin operating to Helensvale in the coming weeks.
Transport Minister and Deputy Premier Jackie Trad told the Gold Coast Bulletin the new carriages would be put through their paces before taking passengers.
“These brand new trams, which are the same as those used on Stage 1, will now be tested on-track to ensure the trams are safe and reliable before opening for passenger services,” Ms Trad said.
“It will also give our drivers the chance to familiarise themselves with the new 7.3-kilometre extension over the coming months.”
Tram services would be disrupted on Monday night, from 10pm to 5am, as the new carriages were placed on the tracks. Night bus services would be available during this time.
