The road is motorway standard for 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from the Pacific Motorway (exit 66), until the Parklands Drive intersection. It then runs as a divided road until High Street in Southport, where it turns into North Street until the Gold Coast Highway. The motorway passes by the city's Health and Knowledge precinct, home to Griffith University, Gold Coast University Hospital and Gold Coast Private Hospital.
A new iconic red bridge for pedestrians across Smith Street was completed in early 2007. The red bridge joins the existing parklands campus of Griffith University to the new site on the southern side of Smith Street.
- The highest point of the highway is 45 metres at the Smith Street interchange near the Pacific motorway.
