GoldlinQ has been appointed, by the Queensland government, to lead the construction tender process for the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3A project.
GoldlinQ chairman John Witheriff said the competitive tender process for design and construction would start by seeking interest from leading national and international companies.
“A shortlist of selected contractors will be determined early next year with a detailed tender process to follow, allowing a construction partner to be appointed and major works to start in the second half of 2020,” Witheriff said.
“Lessons learnt from Stage 1 were implemented in the delivery of Stage 2 and our focus is on ensuring value for money, an innovative construction approach and minimising community impacts.
“We are partnering with government to deliver this project and will work closely with industry throughout the process.”
The 6.4-kilometre southern extension is being fast-tracked after the federal government recently made an additional funding commitment of $157 million towards the project.
“Gold Coasters and people from across the world have embraced the G (light rail), with more than 42 million trips taken since stage one opened five years ago,” transport and main roads minister Mark Bailey said.
