Graham to install new busway bridge at Belfast Transport Hub

WCN Editorial Team 22 Feb 2022 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Construction firm Graham has secured a contract to deliver new Busway Bridge for the Belfast Transport Hub in Northern Ireland (NI).

Under the contract, Graham will be responsible for the installation of new weathered steel bridge.

Graham contracts director Andrew Henry said: “We’re pleased to have been awarded this additional package of works on the Belfast Transport Hub scheme, which will facilitate the wider construction of the Hub.

“We have an excellent existing relationship with our client Translink, having successfully collaborated on several high-profile schemes including a new train maintenance facility at Adelaide Depot and the new Portrush Train Station, which have both brought major benefits to the areas they serve.

“As experts in the field of civil engineering our teams will be on hand to deliver the new busway bridge safely and efficiently and to support the completion of the new train and bus deport by the main works contractor.”

Belfast Transport Hub is a NI Executive Flagship project, which aims to transform an 8ha site into an integrated transport hub to improve local and international connectivity of bus, coach and rail links across NI and beyond.

The project will alter the existing Translink Busway route that runs into the Europa BusCentre.

Additionally, the integrated project aims to encourage people to use public transport, thereby reducing road traffic congestion as well as air pollution in the region.

The new project is being developed at a new city neighbourhood called ‘Weavers Cross’ and is expected to bring in socio-economic as well as environmental benefits for Belfast and Northern Ireland.

Belfast Transport Hub programme manager Lisa McFadden said: “We are looking forward to working with Graham on the construction of the Busway Bridge, an integral part of the exciting new Belfast Transport Hub Project.”
