Great Victoria Street Lane Closures for Essential Public Realm works

As part of the Belfast Grand Central Station project, there will be significant investment in public realm improvement works around the new station to enhance pedestrian safety, walking routes, accessibility and cycling.

To facilitate installation of a new pedestrian crossing at the junction of Great Victoria Street and Glengall Street, our contractor Farrans Sacyr Joint Venture requires lane closures on Great Victoria Street on Sunday 23rd and Sunday 30th June 2024.

On Sunday 23rd June there will be a citybound lane closure on Great Victoria Street with diversions in place to construct a new pedestrian crossing. The works will be from the end of Glengall Street and half of the pedestrian crossing on Great Victoria Street. The lane closure will be in place from 7am to 11.59pm. Diversionary routes will be in place via Hope Street, Bruce Street and Bedford Street with Translink services rejoining the normal route at Howard Street.

The 300 Bus Service to the International Airport and Goldliner 212 service to Derry~Londonderry will operate from the Europa Buscentre, via Durham Street and the Westlink. The 300 Airport service will not serve Queen Street on the outward journey.

Metro services where appropriate will be diverted citybound via Bruce Street and Bedford Street into the city centre.

On Sunday 30th June there will be a southbound lane closure on Great Victoria Street to construct the remaining half of the pedestrian crossing. The lane closure will be in place from 7am to 11.59pm.

Ulsterbus services will be unaffected.

Metro services where appropriate will be diverted out of the city centre via Bedford Street and Dublin Road.

Translink is continuing to encourage people to consider using public transport to access the city during these public realm works as road users may expect some delays.

Passengers should check the website or Journey Planner before they travel and allow some extra time for their journey.

Translink would like to take this opportunity to thank the general public for their patience during these essential works.
