North-West Multimodal Transport Hub

Public Consultation - Have Your Say
 
 
 
 
 
The former Waterside Station site is now confirmed as the location for a new North-West Multimodal Transport Hub.
 
The new Hub will be an important gateway to the North-West, regenerating the local area. It will encourage a modal shift from car to public transport and other sustainable modes by providing integrated and convenient services to encourage more active travel for a healthier region.
 
Proposals include restoration and refurbishment of the former listed Waterside Railway Station, new platforms, an enhanced Park&Ride, an Active and Sustainable Travel Centre, demolition of the current train station, a new bus turning circle, Greenway link to the City Centre via the Peace Bridge as well as Track, Signalling and Telecoms works.
 
 
 
 
Help Us Shape The Plans
We want to involve local people in developing our proposals for this major new facility and invite your feedback in advance of the formal planning application process.

Deadline for Responses is Friday 20th January 2017.
