The Queensland Government has bought 44 properties and will reclaim all or part of another 200 to accommodate the Gold Coast light rail system.
Design work for the 13 kilometre track, which links the new Gold Coast University Hospital at Parklands to Broadbeach, has been completed and roadworks will begin in October.
The communications manager of the rapid transit project, Anna Carroll, says the affected land been divided into eight packages and compensation forms have been sent to property owners in the first group along Queen Street at Southport.
"The residents engage an independent valuer and they are reimbursed reasonable fees for that so they are not out of pocket and the project engages independent valuers - those two experts review the land requirement and they come together and through their processes reach agreement on fair market value," she said.
