HistoryEdit

Coomera station opened on 25 February 1996 when the Gold Coast line opened from Beenleigh to Helensvale.[1] A track duplication to the south of the station, linking with Helensvale, was completed in October 2017.[2] The new track provides additional capacity in time for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The duplication required the construction of 8 new rail bridges, including one with a span of 860 metres across the Coomera River, Hope Island Road and Saltwater Creek.[3]

ServicesEdit

Coomera is served by Gold Coast line services from Varsity Lakes to Bowen Hills, Doomben and Brisbane Airport Domestic.[4]
