CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors was selected by GoldLinQ Pty Ltd as the preferred contractor to deliver Stage Two of the Gold Coast Light Rail Project.

The Queensland State Government announced $420m funding for Stage Two, which incorporates design and construction (D&C), and operations and maintenance through to 2029. CPB will be responsible for the D&C component.
