ACE members in Northern Ireland were given an exclusive preview of the Belfast Transport Hub by Translink CEO, Chris Conway at the annual group AGM in December 2019.
The £200 million project will provide 400 jobs and create a major transport facility in Belfast. Eight rail platforms and 26 coach/bus bays will be bought together in this hub which will replace the city’s Europa Bus Centre and Victoria Street train station.
Conway shared how local communities have been consulted on the scheme as it progresses, but the idea is for the project to act as a catalyst for regeneration, with around half of the 20 acre site earmarked for business and residential development, alongside community open spaces.
For group members it was a great opportunity to ask questions, make connections and explore potential opportunities for their businesses.
