Smith Street Motorway (SR10) (or the Smith Street extension) is a main route in the Gold Coast, Australia. It is Gold Coast's second motorway, the other being Pacific Motorway. It connects one of the Gold Coast's major centres, Southport to the Pacific Motorway.
The road is motorway standard for 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from the Pacific Motorway (exit 66), until the Parklands Drive intersection. It then runs as a divided road up until High Street in Southport, where it turns into North Street up until the Gold Coast Highway. Important places along the route include Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus and Parklands Gold Coast, the city's showgrounds. The Gold Coast University Hospital is also planned for along the route.
A new iconic red bridge for pedestrians across Smith Street was completed in early 2007. The red bridge joins the existing parklands campus of Griffith University to the new site on the southern side of Smith Street.
- The highest point of the highway is 45 metres at the Smith Street interchange near the Pacific motorway.
