Park Cove Hope Island – An accessible and connected lifestyle

When searching for a place to call home, access to major transport and a general feeling of connectivity rate high amongst the wants and needs of home buyers.   Families want to live within close proximity to either public transport or a major highway to get to work, school, shops and family and friends.

Park Cove at Hope Island is in the fortunate position of being within just 50 minutes drive to Brisbane and just 30 minutes to Surfers Paradise.   Hope Island has direct access to the M1 via Hope Island Road which provides easy access for residents to make their way to any destination at any time.

However, the good news doesn’t stop there for Hope Island residents and potential buyers.  We’ve taken a look at two of the exciting future public transport projects for Hope Island:

Light Rail to Heavy Rail Connection

Since the introduction of the light rail/G:Link Tram, accessibility and transport in between Southport and Broadbeach has significantly improved.  Locals and tourists have been commuting in between these key destinations with ease and it has been a major success.  Stage 2 of this project is now underway and provides an extension of the light rail track from Southport straight to Helensvale Train Station.   Set to be fully operational by February 2018, this connection to the heavy rail at Helensvale is a major milestone for residents living at Hope Island.  Residents can simply drive 15 minutes to Helensvale Train Station and take the Light Rail directly to Surfers Paradise or one of the light rail stations that provide access to the beach, Pacific Fair or Star Casino.

Coomera to Helensvale Rail Duplication Project

Many Hope Island residents catch the train to work, typically into Brisbane from Helensvale Station. The current level of patronage in between the Gold Coast and Brisbane Railways is already high, so with the projected increase of patronage from the Light Rail to Heavy Rail Connection, expansion is required.

Construction of this duplication is already underway and involves duplicating the final section of single track between the Coomera and Helensvale Stations.  Once completed (estimated late 2017), this duplication will increase peak hour capacity on the Gold Coast line from six trains per hour to eight trains per hour, with a future capacity of up to 17 trains per hour dependent on increased inner city capacity and rail corridor enhancements.

These two major public transport projects will provide residents of Park Cove at Hope Island with more connectivity and accessibility than ever before.
