Traffic management

We are looking at making our roads safer for all users including motorists, pedestrians and bike riders. As our resident and visitor population grows, the impacts to our city and road network increase. The City is actively engaging crews seven days a week to manage our roads through CCTV and signal manipulation, as well as the repair and maintenance of the roads to keep up with the demand.

Our transport challenges include traffic congestion and car dependence. Effective transport systems are integral to our city and connect us to our communities. Our future transport strategy will deliver infrastructure and services to meet the city's needs as well as promoting the use of public and active transport to help reduce car trips.

City road closures

To view current and recent road works and projects, view our Projects & works page.

The City conducts an extensive road resurfacing program of works annually. Due to the short duration of these works, information is not included on this page.

What we are doing for road safety?

We developed the Gold Coast City Transport Strategy 2031 to manage our increasing population with a connected transport system that aligns with your future travel needs. This will help maximise the safety of residents and visitors as we all move around our city.

Our school education program, Zero the Hero is being rolled out to help educate students, parents and teachers about safe road practices over the primary school years.

In 2015 we devised the Drive Safe community speed awareness program, aiming to create a safer road transport future by focusing on the individual and shared responsibilities of all road users.
