Translink has announced that the York Street Station Redevelopment enabling works have commenced.
The new station represents a major capital investment by the Department for Infrastructure at the heart of North Belfast. The station has been designed to be fully inclusive for all, will be a catalyst for further investment in the area and encourage modal shift towards public transport.
Following a comprehensive community consultation process, Translink submitted plans to redevelop Yorkgate Station and in May 2020, Belfast City Council granted planning approval.
Following the completion of the project the new station will be renamed York Street Station – which will better reflect the location of the station in the centre of the vibrant North Belfast area.
