Cudgen Connection is committed to innovative practice in a myriad of sustainability initiatives at no cost to the local community, council, state or federal governments

Public transport

A centrally located hub-and-spoke bus interchange is proposed to promote and encourage the use of public transport, not only within the precinct but the local region.

The interchange can facilitate a central spine bus network, linking areas of major employment and education. An example is a network of electric buses from Coolangatta Airport, Southern Cross University Coolangatta Campus, Coolangatta CBD, Tweed Heads, Tweeds Heads South and Cudgen Connection. 

Separate routes may operate to nearby Murwillumbah, Pottsville and other towns, linking residential areas to the central employment, education and business facilities.

Data connectivity

Cudgen Connection partner Digital Infratech is installing a network of fibre optic data cables from a new undersea cable network on the Sunshine Coast. The undersea cable links directly to Guam in the North Pacific, delivering digital connectivity to South East Queensland.

Digital Infratech currently plans to extend this network to the Cudgen Connection site, with operational works scheduled for completion in 2024.

This connection will deliver diversity, self-sufficiency and world class digital connectivity to the precinct and surrounding region.

It will help the next generation of health, technology and science industries prosper, as well as leverage competitive advantage and speed in diversified internet connections for consumers.

Recognition of farmland

The parcel of land proposed for Cudgen Connection and positioned at the front door to Cudgen Plateau has not been farmed for decades. Cudgen Connection intends to have no negative impacts on farmland.

Housing stress

300 units will be included for essential workers employed in the precinct at rental rates below market value.

An 85-bed medihotel will accommodate patients, their families and friends. Patient accommodation will offset up to 4,500 hospital bed occupancies per year, with significant savings to public hospital operating costs.
