The Gold Coast Suns have teamed up with Cross River Rail to find out what their new rail project will mean for Queensland’s AFL fans in the future. 

Cross River Rail Delivery Authority Chief Executive, Graeme Newton, said today that the new partnership is designed to make sure fans can have their say on what improvements to public transport might mean for them in the future.

“Nothing beats the feeling of cheering your team on live and as we get back to having fans in stadiums, we need to keep talking about how Cross River Rail will be able to improve your game day experience,” Mr Newton said.

“On the Gold Coast, we’re not just building three new train stations at Pimpama, Merrimac and Hope Island, we’re creating capacity for more trains to run more often along the entire Gold Coast rail line.”

Minister responsible for Cross River Rail, Kate Jones added that the impact Cross River Rail will have on major sports events is a great example of why the Government has pushed ahead with construction.

“Cross River Rail will transform the way we travel across the whole of South East Queensland,” Ms Jones said.

SUNS CEO Mark Evans said that under the new relationship, Cross River Rail will utilise the Gold Coast SUNS SUNS digital, community and match day channels to actively consult both SUNS members and fans and Gold Coast residents on the new public transport improvements.
