Planning officers in Northern Ireland have approved John McAslan + Partners’ integrated bus and rail station for Belfast.

As detailed on the Architects’ Journal, the landmark scheme will include a range of public realm improvements, 26 new bus stands and eight railway platforms, and is designed to meet growing demand for public transport in the city and enhance the experience for people using it.

Northern Ireland’s public transport company Translink launched a contest to design the hub back in 2013. McAslan won the competition and, following a four-year consultation process, submitted a planning application in 2017.
