In 2020, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) completed a multi-modal corridor study for the Gold Coast Highway between Burleigh Heads and Tugun, which recommended provision of a new, separated active transport bridge east of the existing Currumbin Creek Estuary Bridge of the Gold Coast Highway.
The proposed Currumbin Creek Active Transport Bridge would run east of and separate to the existing Currumbin Creek Estuary Bridge, which forms part of the Gold Coast Highway between Palm Beach and Currumbin.
Active transport users currently use a narrow, steep footpath on the existing Currumbin Creek Estuary Bridge with no place to stop, rest and enjoy the view. The current path is also close to traffic on the Gold Coast Highway which makes it difficult for those using mobility devices, like wheelchairs and prams, to access the footpath safely and conveniently.
This project is planning for a separated, dedicated and wider shared active transport path over Currumbin Creek providing all users with a safer and more comfortable journey.
The proposed project is part of the Gold Coast Oceanway; a 36-kilometre network of active transport paths along or near the coast between Main Beach and Coolangatta. The Oceanway is designed to make walking and bike riding more attractive as alternatives to driving.
