City of Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate today turned the first sod on early works for Georgiou’s $19.5 million Home of the Arts (HOTA) Green Bridge project.
Scope of works includes the construction of a 130m pedestrian and cycle bridge which will provide a vital gateway between HOTA and Surfers Paradise via Chevron Island.
“The Green Bridge will provide more ways to access HOTA and add to the City’s active transport network,” Mr Tate explained.
“By the end of 2019, you will be able to catch the light rail and walk from Surfers Paradise through the Chevron Island retail and restaurant strip into our precinct.”
The project is a joint venture between Georgiou and Brady Marine and Civil, with bridge construction set to begin in December 2018.
