Ideally I would have liked to include a photograph from the Lislea Avenue/Lislea Drive footbridge but other buildings obstruct the view. This one shows the depot, under construction, behind Charleville Street J3271 : Alley, Charleville Street, Belfast. The Google map and the satellite photograph do not coincide.
Adelaide train maintenance depot, Adelaide, Belfast
Quoting from a Translink press release: “Construction work is underway in South Belfast as part of a Translink NI Railway’s project to develop a new train maintenance facility for its 20 new state-of-the-art trains.
Existing train cleaning and maintenance facilities based at York Road and the Fortwilliam area of North Belfast are currently operating at or near to full capacity. This new facility will provide engineering and workshops, a train wash, fuelling and train stabilizing facilities for the new fleet of Class 4000 trains.
The maintenance depot will be built at Translink’s Adelaide Depot off Boucher Road in South Belfast and Translink Infrastructure Executive, Clive Bradberry, says that its construction reflects a massive increase in demand for rail services”.
