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
There are more than half a dozen development projects on the Gold Coast, each worth more than $1 billion that are underway or about to start.
Our urban city is undergoing a remarkable redevelopment that will put us at the forefront of world-class, architecture and technology.
Infrastructure on the Gold Coast is not only for putting on the largest sporting event in our history, it is about providing a purpose long after 2018 for those who choose to live work and play in the city.
With a nod to our traditional economic drivers of tourism and construction, the Gold Coast is creating new 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, a light rail 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 20 kilometres of high speed fibre will follow the light rail route to and support the delivery of world-class broadband speeds for thousands of businesses, residences and events.
Free Wi-Fi in the city will give ground for businesses to grow in the digital age, while events will be better than ever with spectators able to share their experience online with friends, family and the rest of the world.
