Looks like TMR have chosen to use the preserved transport corridor for light rail instead of road. Putting the light rail terminus on the eastern side of Helensvale station minimises disruption to existing services. I also note that access to Parkwood East station is via Faldo Court, also minimising property resumptions. It looks like the Parkwood Park 'n' Ride leaves the option of building a heavy rail station at Parkwood at some point in the future.

Tram has been hit by a fire truck. Looks to be derailed. How difficult will this be to fix?

Notice now that many stations on G link tram now have more go card readers, six on each platform and prominent notices reminding passengers they need to touch on before boarding the tram. Fare evasion been a problem?
