HASSELL was commissioned to undertake the Gold Coast Rapid Transit (GCRT) Corridor Study, Phase 2 for the Gold Coast City Council.
To harness one of the most significant committed public transport projects in the country, the Gold Coast City Council has commissioned the GCRT Corridor Study to help maximise city-wide economic, lifestyle and sustainability benefits.
The study aims to establish a shared vision and growth framework for this linear 2,000 hectares of the city’s most intensively populated and developed areas, including the iconic coastal strip and Surfers Paradise. The evolving shape of this area will define the image of the Gold Coast into the future, and provide significant opportunities for sustainable infill development, underpinned by a world class public transport system.
The study wrestles with the considerable challenge of integrating a transit system into the living urban environment and contemplates radically different responses in each location as dictated by local context and circumstance.
