In a joint venture with Farrans, we are to develop the main construction works of the new Belfast Grand Central Station Interchange in Belfast (Northern Ireland) within 4 years.

The new transport hub will replace the current Europa bus center and Great Victoria Street train station in an eight-hectare site in Weavers Cross, a new neighborhood in the center of the city that will contribute to the regeneration of that area.

This facility will be a multimodal transport hub with 26 bus stops, 8 train platforms, as well as bike lanes that will foster sustainable mobility in the city and enhance connectivity in the region. It will also have design and construction elements to promote efficient mobility, respect for the environment and energy conservation.

This project, awarded by Translink, the public transport services operator in Northern Ireland will bring numerous social and collaborative initiatives with the community to regenerate the area and it will create 500 jobs during construction.

For Duane McCreadie, Project director of Farrans-Sacyr JV on the project "Belfast Transport Hub will be crucial in shaping the future of the city and promoting sustainable transport. Social value will play a significant role during construction, and we will be engaging closely with community groups, charities and schools to create local employment, training, and apprenticeship opportunities to deliver a positive and lasting impact".
