MP's big plans for Bonney

Calls For Light Rail To Take Shoppers All The Way To Harbour Town

It'll be easier to lug all those shopping bags home from Harbour Town, if the Member for the brand new electorate of Bonney gets his way.

Sam O'Connor made his maiden speech in state parliament on Tuesday and took the opportunity to call for the light rail to be extended to Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre in Biggera Waters.

The Gold Coast MP said the spur would be less than 3km long, branching off from the Gold Coast University Hospital stop, and travelling along Olsen Ave.

"This essential connection could include stops at Southport Sharks and Central Street," he said.

"The Harbour Town area would be a hub and would it allow easier access to the tram network for people from Biggera Waters and further north".
