The Gooding Drive roundabout upgrade will improve traffic flow, capacity and provide overall network benefits, as well as accommodate significant additional traffic anticipated as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

STR
strategy

The Struber Engagement taskforce was brought in during the pre-construction phase to manage communication and stakeholder engagement within the local community. To achieve project objectives within the designated, hard deadlines, Struber initiated its critical start-up engagement model to ensure all community-related contractual requirements were satisfied prior to construction commencing.

STR
tactics

Struber utilised dynamic campaigns to achieve project objectives, including:

  • ‘THINK COMMS’ to promote Struber’s engagement strategy internally and create synergy with the wider project team
  • ‘OPENING ENGAGEMENT’ to educate the local community on safely navigating the new roundabout.

Additionally, the Struber Taskforce coordinated project media events, provided content for newsletters and maps, and engaged over 80,000 stakeholders from the local and wider Gold Coast community.

STR
results

The Struber Taskforce assisted in delivering an accelerated construction program by:

  • Engaging with over 80,000 stakeholders
  • Planning and delivering a coordinated communications campaign to local residents and business
  • Liaising with key stakeholders on pertinent issues
  • Facilitating constructive dialogue on sensitive construction related impacts.

Struber’s engagement strategy resulted in mitigated disruptions to road users and businesses, and positive feedback from the community to the project team.
