Proposed Belfast transport hub
The following is a part quotation from a Department for Regional Development press release issued on 1 July 2014: “Kennedy appoints design team for development of Belfast Transport Hub . . . . The new design team and architects who comprise of Arup, Lead Architect Hiro Aso and John McAslan and Partners have an extensive portfolio in the development and delivery of modern and highly efficient transports infrastructure facilities including Kings Cross Station in London. . . . . The Hub is set to be located on the 20 acre site of the existing Europa Buscentre and Great Victoria Street Train Station. Already around 7 million passengers use these facilities each year and as more people choose to use the bus and train this is estimated to increase to around 13 million passengers by 2030. . . . . The Department in partnership with Translink and the Strategic Investment Board has been working to develop the feasibility of the new Transport Hub and the appointment of the design team takes the project to the next phase”.
