Broadbeach to Miami north
- The new retaining wall at Miami has reached structural completion, with more than 270 cubic metres of shotcrete and 400 soil nails used on this part of the project. It’s the first of two major retaining walls being constructed, with work commencing on the next one at Burleigh Heads. Road pavement works are now progressing next to the retaining wall.

This includes day and night works in various locations along the northbound carriageway of the Gold Coast Highway. Over the coming months, utility works will commence along the southbound carriageway.
