G:Link Light Rail Opening Day 20 July 2014

In August 2012 the cost of the initial 13-kilometre (8.1 mi) section was estimated at $1.6 billion.
By November 2013 much of the work was complete with the southern section at Broadbeach being the only section of trackwork to be completed. Testing commenced on the northern section of the line in October 2013. The line opened on 20 July 2014, with a free travel day, before normal operations began on 21 July.
The system had significant impact on property both directly and indirectly in the corridor. A total of $170 million was allocated for property resumptions. The Queens Park Tennis Club and Southport Croquet Club were both relocated.
The line opened on 20 July 2014.
