The first contract for a billion-dollar light rail system on Queensland's Gold Coast has been awarded.
Leighton Contractors will build the Gold Coast University Hospital Station Shell and carry out associated roadworks in Southport, worth approximately $33 million.
This first major package includes construction of the floor, roof and walls that will support the future light-rail station structure, Transport Minister Rachel Nolan said in a statement.
Stage one of the Gold Coast Rapid Transit system, from Griffith University to Broadbeach via Southport and Surfers Paradise, is due to begin operation in 2014.
The Gold Coast Rapid Transit project has secured funding commitments totalling $949 million from federal, state and local government for stage one, which will include 16 stations.
Potential future stages could see the light rail system extended as far as Coolangatta, on the NSW border.
