First Glimpse - G:link tram

Here it is. The first of the new light-rail trams for the Gold Coast's new G:Link has arrived for a trial run. It's 43m long, and can carry more than 300 people.

The service starts in mid 2014 with a route of 16 stations from the University Hospital, through Surfers Paradise and down to Broadbeach. End-to-end will take just 37 minutes, and high-frequency services will be available from 5am to midnight.

PS. I'm a previous Gold Coast resident, so it's exciting to see more public transport options in that area.
