We’re improving traffic flow in the heart of the Gold Coast so you can spend less time on the road, and more time enjoying our beautiful city.
As the gateway to a number of popular cultural precincts, the Sundale Bridge, Gold Coast Highway, Waterways Drive and Macarthur Parade are experiencing significant congestion.
Drivers travelling from The Spit to Southport can experience delays of up to 35 minutes during peak times. Without intervention, by 2041 the delay could increase by up to two hours.
To help keep traffic moving, we’re delivering a number of upgrades to increase network capacity along this popular route. This includes adding a fifth lane on the Sundale Bridge, and upgrading Waterways Drive, Macarthur Parade and associated intersections.
Once the project is complete, it’s projected that trips from The Spit to Southport will be reduced to around eight minutes during peak times.
