Renamed Belfast Grand Central Station in 2022, the Belfast Transport Hub is a multi-million-pound transport led regeneration project and is a NI Executive Flagship project. It will see the transformation of an 8-hectre city-centre site, delivering a modern high-quality integrated transport hub to enhance local and international connectivity with bus, coach and rail links across Northern Ireland and beyond.
It will be a key driver of social, economic and environmental wellbeing for Belfast and Northern Ireland, and will be at the heart of an exciting new city neighbourhood called 'Weavers Cross', with imaginative mixed-use development proposals. More on Weavers Cross can be found here.
Through 2 contracted phases of work, GRAHAM has completed essential early engineering works to prepare the site for construction (Belfast Transport Hub Enabling Works Project) and is currently delivering a Busway Bridge to facilitate bus access to the new station (Belfast Transport Hub Busway Bridge & Ramps Project). More information on both these projects can be found below.
GRAHAM was awarded a Site Enabling Works Contract by Translink in November 2019.
This included the delivery temporary buildings including welfare and maintenance facilities, the realignment of the existing culverts that run below the proposed Transport Hub footprint, the replacement and widening of the existing footbridge 308A at Blythefield Park and utility diversion works in the surrounding streets to the project.
This project phase was successfully completed in 2022. Click on the links above to see videos on specific aspects of the works, and/or scroll through our project achievements and how we have worked with our local community to ‘Deliver Lasting Impact’ throughout the project!
Awarded to GRAHAM by Translink in 2022, this project will see alterations to the existing Translink Busway route which runs into the Europa Bus Centre and the installation of a new weathered steel bridge. This will enable the Belfast Transport Hub’s main works contractor to construct the new integrated bus and rail infrastructure.

“We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver the essential early engineering works for the construction of the new Belfast Transport Hub. We’re looking forward to working with Translink again - having successfully collaborated on high-profile projects in the past including the new train maintenance facility at Adelaide Depot and, most recently, the new Portrush Train Station."
