Runway incursion trap at YBCG

If you’re flying into or out of Gold Coast (YBCG) as part of today’s ATC schedule, be aware that there is a nasty trap on the taxiway to/from the North end of runway 14/32:

That junction bounded by hold short bars is actually part of runway 17/35. You need to hold short there and get permission to cross when taxiing. Switch to satellite view on the map to see the bars.

I flew out of YBCG a few weeks ago and didn’t even notice this. Thanks for the heads up for everyone!
