Construction on the $709 million Broadbeach to Burleigh section of the Gold Coast light rail project could begin before Christmas.

More than 50 million passengers have ridden the G:link since the first leg opened in July 2014.
Stage three, between Broadbeach and Burleigh, is funded by all three levels of government and the Queenland government has kicked in $2.5 million towards the $5 million business case for stage four.
“We’re nearly ready to award the contract to build the next stage of Gold Coast Light Rail from Broadbeach to Burleigh, creating 760 jobs,” Ms Palaszczuk said on the Gold Coast.
Already some buildings had been relocated, with power, water and gas utilities shifted and fences erected.
