RPS played a key role in delivering the new, high-capacity light rail system between Helensvale and Coolangatta. Working with Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads, as members of the integrated project team, our people helped to deliver transaction services, project and program management, integrated planning, city building and communications advice.
We developed high quality documents to demonstrate the business need and commercial viability of the project to both the Australian and Queensland Governments. We also helped create the governance structure for the project, which accommodated the investment made by three levels of government.
We led the transaction services strategy and process for the first stage of work between Griffith University (Southport) and Broadbeach, which required all contracts to be in place to enable construction, commissioning and operation of the new system by January 2014.
