We are delivering world class infrastructure, creating global business partnerships and building one of the best places in the world to live, work and raise a family.– Mayor Tom Tate
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Gold Coast is projected to be home to more than 1.2 million by 2050 – one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.
The City is working hard to sustainably manage this growth and capitalise on the opportunity to deliver modern infrastructure that will continue to enhance our enviable lifestyle and grow our economy to create new job opportunities for our residents.
A legacy of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Gold Coast has undergone a rapid period of transformation that has delivered modern transportation, sporting facilities, research and commercialisation hubs, digital network, cultural centre, parklands and open space, safety and security and urban renewal of key precincts.
This infrastructure is changing the way we grow as a city, from our young athletes that train in our facilities to our university students that have access to world-leading research, our youth discovering new arts and culture experiences and our businesses winning new export contracts.
With a nod to our traditional economic drivers of tourism and construction, the Gold Coast is developing enhanced connectivity and innovative infrastructure that promises to leave a lasting legacy for years to come.
Recent public and private investment of almost $13 billion in major infrastructure, including an integrated Health and Knowledge Precinct, a number of high-performance sporting facilities, tourism infrastructure like; a more connected Gold Coast light rail system and a new Cultural Precinct, the city is experiencing a new level of buoyancy.
A key piece of innovative infrastructure on the Gold Coast is an optic fibre system that is 10 times faster than the National Broadband Network.
The high-speed fibre follows the light rail route and supports the delivery of world-class broadband speeds for thousands of businesses, residences and events.
