Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is responsible for planning and delivering the transport operations for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games (GC2018), in partnership with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation and the City of Gold Coast.

With thousands of athletes, officials, volunteers, workforce and around 1.2 million ticketed spectators expected to attend events, a successful transport operation is critical to the success of the Games.

The GC2018 Transport Operations Plan sets out how athletes and officials, spectators, workforce and volunteers, and up to 3,500 accredited media can get to their events safely and on time, while keeping the Gold Coast and event cities of Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns moving.
