NSW Government and Queensland Government are planning to undertake a collaborative Multi-Modal Corridor study from Tugun to Tweed Heads South.
Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is carrying out the study in response to the Future Transport 2056 - Regional NSW Services and Infrastructure Plan. The plan identifies the need to investigate an extension of the Gold Coast Light Rail to Tweed.
In Queensland, the Shaping SEQ regional plan and the Gold Coast City Transport Strategy propose an extension of the Gold Coast light rail system from Broadbeach to Coolangatta via the Gold Coast Airport. The Queensland Government has released an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the open market for professional services suppliers to deliver a Multi-Modal Corridor Study.
This study is required to investigate the future requirements of the preferred road corridor for walking, cycling, vehicle traffic, buses and a future extension of the Gold Coast Light Rail. The Queensland Study includes corridor planning investigations for Tugun to Coolangatta.
The NSW study includes corridor planning investigations for a southern extension into Tweed which will be the subject of a separate engagement through TfNSW as the Tweed Multimodal Corridor Study.
TfNSW intends to invite only the shortlisted service providers from the Queensland Government’s Expression of Interest (EOI) to a request for tender (RFT) on the Tweed Multi-Modal Corridor Study later this year.
