In addition to Gecko’s submission on the Light Rail Stage 4 public consultation other groups have made submissions which are worth reading. Gecko works and collaborates with these groups where our values and interest overlap for the benefit of our Gold Coast community and its environmental health. We have provided you with a copy of each submission so give you a fuller picture of community reactions and concerns in relation to the Light Rail Stage 4.
