Burleigh Heads to Gold Coast Airport
Personally I would love to see option A route go ahead, not only would it give access to the airport it would encourage people to venture south to enjoy the nightlife.
Approximate distance: 14km Idea 5 route would continue the current north-south route along the Gold Coast Highway connecting Burleigh and Gold Coast Airport. The extended track from Burleigh to the airport would directly service the suburbs of Tallebudgera, Palm Beach, Currumbin, Tugun and Bilinga, with further bus links to North Kirra, Kirra and Coolangatta. It would also enable southerly connections by bus to Tweed, Kingscliff and Northern NSW tourist areas opening up the city to business from the south. Along the route, it would take in popular entertainment precincts along Palm Beach, Tugun and Currumbin. It would also provide easy access to the popular Coolangatta beachfront markets and major events such as Cooly Rocks On. It would link all the universities – Southern Cross University, Bond University and Griffith University to the north. It would provide easy access to tourism and resort locations including Rainbow Bay, Greenmount and Kirra. In terms of employment, this extension would improve access to the light industrial areas around Currumbin and the airport. Most notably, it would provide a link for inbound and outbound visitors accessing and departing the airport for the tourist centres along the entire coastline.
