Our local budget

Initiatives in the Division 11 Local Area Works Budget 2020-21 and projects in the City Budget 2020-21 Capital Works Program delivers for Robina, Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Waters. Major upgrades are planned for roads, parks and community facilities.

Tackling congestion

Funding focuses on major intersection upgrades around Robina Town Centre and safety initiatives across Varsity Lakes. New paths and crossings help keep cars off the road.


Intersection upgrades

Signalisation projects replace busy roundabouts with safer traffic lights and pedestrian facilities.


New shared paths

New shared paths make it easier to leave the car at home and support those with disability to access services.


Safer pedestrian crossings

Signalised pedestrian crossings support Active School Travel and give seniors safer access to shops and public transport.

Better parks and reserves

Construction will commence on the $15 million Robina City Parklands, our very first city-significant parkland. Meanwhile, new toilets and better lighting will make the most of Varsity Lakes Foreshore Parklands.


Better parklands

Major parkland improvements in Robina and Varsity Lakes will help support a growing population. Renovation projects will revitalise older linkage parks.


More toilets and facilities

A new disability-friendly toilet block will unlock Lake Orr for family get-togethers and relieve walkers.


Safety lighting

Lighting projects focus on safety and encourage early evening use of our popular recreational walks.
