NW Multimodal Transport Hub
The former Waterside Station site has been confirmed as the location for a new North-West Multimodal Transport Hub and is seen as a hugely significant strategic regeneration project for the region.
The project, which is led by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) along with other partners including Translink, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Sustrans and Donegal County Council, will encourage a modal shift from car to public transport and other sustainable modes by providing integrated and convenient services to encourage more active travel for a healthier region.
Proposals include the restoration and refurbishment of the former listed Waterside Railway Station, new platforms, an enhanced Park and Ride facilities as well as an Active and Sustainable Travel Centre, demolition of the current train station, a new bus turning circle, Greenway link to the City Centre via the Peace Bridge as well as Track, Signaling and Telecoms works.
Derry City and Strabane District Council believes the North West Multimodal Transport Hub has the potential to completely regenerate the area around the current and former Waterside train stations, becoming a gateway that will significantly improve connectivity in the North West region.
