Weavers Cross is a Transport led Regeneration Project. There is compelling evidence from other cities that station investment can be a catalyst for wider regeneration and provides a major impact in terms of urban regeneration and wider city transformation.
Stations are at the heart of urban regeneration and are driving a new wave of economic and social development in the 21st century. Increasingly, stations are at the epicentre of growth and regeneration and are seen as destinations for shopping, working, employment, education, living and socialising.
A visionary station masterplan is being established for Weavers Cross setting out its capability to act as a wider catalyst for regeneration through increasing passenger numbers, improving local communities, supporting local businesses and providing opportunities for partnering with private developers.
Weavers Cross will act as a key enabler of wider regeneration by connecting people and opportunities through infrastructure delivering a key outcome within the Programme for Government. Working in conjunction with Belfast City Council we are looking to support the ambitions of the Belfast Agenda to provide further opportunities for residents to live and work in the city centre.
Weavers Cross is part of a Special Action Area within the Belfast City Centre Regeneration and Investment Strategy and Translink are interfacing with other Belfast City Council Developments including the Linen Quarter to be a part of the collective ambition for the continued growth and regeneration of the city core and its surrounding areas.
