Abstract

The Gold Coast Light Rail project represents a significant investment in public transportation infrastructure on the Gold Coast and is one of the key initiatives set out in City of Gold Coast Council’s Transport Strategy 2031. This paper conducts an impact analysis of Stage 2 on the peripheral transportation network. To assess the anticipated impacts, a traffic simulation was conducted in PTV Visum 16 for the base year of 2018 and forecasted for year 2031. For the base and forecasted models, a scenario was prepared both with and without Stage 2 of the system to allow a comparison of results between the variants. According to the results, it is found that Stage 2 has a positive impact on the transportation network by successfully implementing an integrated transport solution encouraging users to switch to public transport.
