Case Study Background

The North-West Transport Hub, Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland is a recently constructed multi-modal transport hub. The Hub is a £27m gateway project that completed in October 2019 and was developed with the assistance of European funding. The Hub involved the regeneration of a listed, former railway station to provide a fit for purpose, multi-modal hub. The Hub provides a purpose-built railway station and Active Travel Centre and is intended to encourage a modal shift, while improving city centre and cross border (ROI) linkages.

Development partners included Translink, Department for Infrastructure, Derry City and Strabane District Council and Donegal County Council.
