Trams suspended after crash

TRAM services have now been restored after a traffic crash halted transport between Cavil Avenue and Broadbeach South earlier this afternoon.

A car crossed tram tracks and collided with a metal pole on Australian Avenue in Broadbeach at around 1.15pm, according to emergency services.

The incident occurred on an intersection between Broadbeach North Station and Florida Gardens Station.

One person, who exited the vehicle, has been taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition with no obvious injuries.

TransLink representatives said buses were arranged for the area, however they predicted delays of up to 60 minutes in the area.

Police have now cleared the scene, with a five to ten minute wait expected as services catch up.
