Project description

As the host of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), we are ensuring our venues are accessible by pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

This project has improved the connectivity to our venues. Once completed, these new connections will create an enjoyable experience for spectators as they travel between our venues.

Project details

The project works across Kropp Park green bridge and path connections through Len Wort Park and the previously unsealed part of Pacific Parade, Currumbin are now complete.

Works included infrastructure improvements for pedestrians and cyclists, replacing the green bridge across Flat Rock Creek with a new, five metre wide bridge connecting Kropp Park with Len Wort Park. This new bridge has been named the Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew bridge in honour of local surfing legend Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew.


  • Connecting the GC2018 events to various modes of transport making it easier for people to walk, cycle and catch public transport to these venues.
  • Improved active transport infrastructure to access GC2018 venues as well as legacy benefits of improved access for the local community.
  • A safer path network that helps to make walking and cycling attractive alternatives to the car.
  • Improved access for those with disabilities.

Once completed, these upgrades will contribute to developing a GC2018 transport network that supports public and active transport options for spectators and the game’s workforce.
