Moira Park & Ride

Park and Ride facility Moira

Plans are in progress to provide an enhanced, 400+ space Park and Ride facility close to Moira Train Station, significantly enhancing existing facilities in the area. 

There has been considerable pressure on Park and Ride capacity in the Moira area in recent years, with a knock-on impact on nearby private property. The proposed enhancements to Park and Ride provision will help to alleviate these issues.

Translink is proposing a Park and Ride facility including tarmacked parking area, landscaping, boundary fencing, CCTV and floodlighting (powered by solar panel array and associated battery storage building), cycle shelter building, storm water retention pond and the widening of Station Road to facilitate a right-hand turning lane into the site and footpath provision for pedestrian access to Moira Train Station at lands 65m north of the train station (between 4 and 4a Station Road and to the rear of 2 Station Road, Moira).

Moira Train Station will not be affected by any potential works. There will also be no inconvenience for drivers using the existing Park and Ride facility when work is underway.  

Public transport plays a vital role in the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of NI helping to create a better connected future for everyone
