New Moira Park & Ride Facility

Demand for Park and Ride is growing rapidly as more and more people enjoy the convenience of taking the bus and train as a better way to travel; our customers enjoy more productive time on board with the opportunity to work, browse the internet and social media with free WiFi or simply relax on board.
 
To enhance the current Park and Ride facilities at Moira Train Station we have identified a potential site adjacent to the existing car park which could allow us to increase capacity to around 400 spaces.
 
This development could be a further asset to the wider Moira community by reducing parking problems and making rail travel even more convenient and accessible for more people to use.
 
We have appointed a Design Team to advance these plans and have already been in discussions with Transport NI to develop traffic plans for the new road junctions. The Business Case for the project has been approved and subject to funding, the availability of land and the necessary planning approvals it could potentially start during 2018.
 
 
 
 
Help Us Shape The Plans
We want to involve the local community in our early proposals for a new Park & Ride facility at Moira Train Station. We are keen to hear the views of all our stakeholders including passengers, local residents, community groups and elected representatives.

Help us to shape the plans that we submit for planning application in the coming months.

Closing date for all responses is 30th November 2016

Planning Application
This consultation does not replace the planning process. Those wishing to make formal representations on this project to the local council planners will still have the opportunity to do so when a full planning application has been lodged with local council. Normal neighbourhood notification and publicity will be undertaken at that stage.
