Mayor of Antrim Borough Council, Cllr Roderick Swann, joins Translink's Grainne Butcher to celebrate the success of Antrim Bus & Rail Centre in the recent International Station Awards held in Cardiff.

Northern Ireland's first sustainable low carbon station won the ‘Heritage Award’ that recognises sympathetic enhancements of railway buildings combined with their ability to meet the requirements of today's passengers.

The £2.9 million construction project for the new passenger facility in Antrim involved the careful restoration of the original station's Grade 2 B architecture and façade, incorporating it with environmentally sound technologies and major eco-refurbishments.

Portadown Train Station
Portadown Train Station was also Highly Commended in the ‘Medium Station’ category. The new passenger facility opened in July this year following a £3.6 million redevelopment project which provided a contemporary feel while delivering high standards of accessibility, passenger comfort, convenience and safety.
