1 Mins read
BT Coleraine

Translink has launched a public consultation on proposals to redevelop Portrush Train Station. This is an exciting new development for the town which will provide modern facilities to cater for growing passenger numbers and contribute to the overall regeneration of the town.

Representing an investment of over £5.5m, the new station is expected to be completed in Spring 2019 ahead of the Open Golf Championship in July 2019, subject to a successful planning application.

Launching the public consultation, Translink’s Head of Project Delivery John Glass, said:
“Portrush Train Station is a key gateway to the Causeway Coast and has a key role in supporting local tourism, as such; this redevelopment is an important project for the area.

“The proposed designs will provide fully accessible, modern waiting facilities, while also helping to enhance the image and regenerate the surrounding area as part of the Portrush Regeneration Programme.

John continued: “The plans also incorporate improved passenger information and signage to local amenities and attractions and enhanced frontage onto Eglinton Street, creating a more prominent sense of arrival to the town. The designs also ensure high environmental standards in line with our commitment to enhance and protect the local landscape and biodiversity with provision for enhanced cycle storage for active travel and greener tourism links”.

John Glass concluded: “We want to involve local people in the development of our proposals for Portrush Train Station and look forward to receiving feedback from passengers, local residents, community groups and elected representatives.”

During our public consultation, we are urging people to have their say on the proposed redevelopment of Portrush Train Station.
