Infrastructure Minister, Nichola Mallon has welcomed the completion of the first key milestone in the construction of the new Belfast Transport Hub.

Translink has been working in collaboration with construction and civil engineering contractor GRAHAM on the Enabling Works phase, to deliver essential engineering work to clear the site ready for the main build. In this first stage of the development, extensive work has been carried out to successfully move the current bus engineering and operations facilities to new accommodation while maintaining day to day services for passengers. The Enabling Works phase is due to complete late 2021.

This £multi–million transport led regeneration project, funded by the Department for Infrastructure, will see the transformation of the 8–hectare city centre site, delivering a modern, high quality integrated transport hub to enhance local and international connectivity with bus, coach and rail links across Northern Ireland and beyond.

Minister Mallon said:

“Our public transport network is vital in our recovery from COVID–19 both economically and socially. The hub will bring together many aspects of how we travel including greener and cleaner travel by cycling, bus and rail.  As we work to better connect communities across this island, it is my ambition to provide more choices for citizens too, so that access to more sustainable modes of transportation is not a luxury for the few, but an option for the many. By working in partnership we can transform our public transport network and the opportunities for citizens to use active and sustainable travel.
