Australian Gold Coast to get its Tram line on 20th of July

GoldLinQ (also branded as G:link) is a light rail system on the Gold Coast, Australia. The first stage of the project is a 16 station line between Griffith University and Broadbeach. The line is 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) long. It will open on 20 July 2014, with a free travel day, before normal operations begin on 21 July 2014.

The first stage of the system comprises a 13-kilometre (8.1 mi) light rail line along a corridor between Griffith University with Broadbeach connecting the key activity centres of Southport and Surfers Paradise. It will primarily operate in a centre running configuration.

Services will be operated by KDR Gold Coast, a joint venture between Keolis and Downer Rail. The partners also own KDR Melbourne and have operated Yarra Trams in Melbourne since November 2009. It is claimed that the system can move up to 10,000 people an hour. Fares will be set by TransLink with all stations fitted with go card readers.
