A Multi-Modal Transport Hub at Weavers Cross
Across the world, modern, vibrant and growing cities have high quality connectivity at the centre of their sustainable growth and development.
The Belfast Transport Hub, a £multi-million investment by the Department for Infrastructure will be at the heart of an exciting new city neighbourhood called ‘Weavers Cross’ with imaginative mixed-use development proposals.
As a transport led regeneration project, it is a hugely important NI Executive Flagship Project and a key driver of economic growth and prosperity for Belfast & Northern Ireland.
Located on an 8-hectare site beside the current Europa Buscentre and Gt Victoria Street Stations, it will be the main transport gateway to Belfast, creating a sense of arrival in a modern, progressive city, with rail, bus and coach connections to all parts of Northern Ireland and beyond.
Designed to be fully inclusive for all, this impressive facility will be a catalyst for the regeneration of the area and ensure we have the right infrastructure in place to encourage modal shift to attract more people to choose public transport.
We are also working to complement other key initiatives for the area such as the Urban Villages Regeneration scheme, the proposed Linen Quarter as well as local wayfinding trails, Public Realm and cycle initiatives that will encourage more use of public transport and active travel.
With planning permission granted, works are due to start during 2019 with construction of the Hub expected to be completed by 2024, creating over 400 jobs during construction, with commitments to Buy Social and a Construction Academy.
Providing a range of key benefits from operational and economic to environmental and social:
The Belfast Transport Hub design makes it easy for people to access links to South and West Belfast and into the city centre and will complement other key initiatives for the area such as the Urban Villages Regeneration scheme, the proposed Linen Quarter as well as local wayfinding trails, Public Realm and cycle initiatives that will encourage more use of public transport and active travel.
It will also support Belfast City Council's City Centre Regeneration and Investment Strategy with the Hub designated one of the 5 Special Action Areas in the City.
