The New Link Road will:

Provide a direct link between Tweed Coast Road and Marine Parade

 

Relieve traffic congestion, especially once the hospital opens in 2023 

Be built on Gales land

Separate development to the north and environmental conservation to the south

Follow the route and design Council and Gales have agreed on

 

The problem is that Council plans to build the New Link Road only after around 2030.

‘The link road would greatly reduce traffic capacity issues on Cudgen Road, which will occur irrespective of the Gales development and be exacerbated by the opening of the Hospital in 2023.’  (Bitzios Traffic Assessment August 2021)

‘The proposed link road, widening Tweed Coast Road to four lanes, and intersection upgrades are all required to ameliorate future capacity issues associated with anticipated growth within Kingscliff including the Hospital.’

‘By 2023 following the opening of the Hospital, Cudgen Road is expected to reach its theoretical capacity as the only road connection for traffic between Tweed Coast Road and Kingscliff.’

'Improve emergency vehicle access to the Hospital by reducing through traffic volumes and associated delays at Cudgen Road intersections.’

‘The early construction of the link road would provide significant immediate benefits to local road capacity, reduce congestion and ameliorate safety and amenity impacts associated with significant ongoing traffic growth forecast for the surrounding road network. This will subsequently greatly improve access to residences and businesses in Kingscliff Village with consequent commercial / employment benefits.’
