New enhanced passenger facilities and platforms were opened today (21st October) at the new, €23.5m EU funded, North West Transport Hub in Derry-Londonderry.
Located at the former Waterside Train Station, the Grade B-listed building has been restored and repurposed for use as a 21st Century transport facility.
Intended to act as a gateway to the North-West region, the Hub will promote active and sustainable travel, bringing together a wide range of transport modes and providing enhanced customer and staff facilities.

The new PEACE PLUS Programme, which will include both PEACE and INTERREG activities, will build on the work of the current PEACE and INTERREG Programmes between Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland by contributing to social, economic and regional stability in the regions concerned; in particular through actions to promote cohesion between communities.
The development of the programme content will be subject to an extensive and robust consultation process which will involve a public consultation process commencing in late 2019 or early 2020. As with previous programmes, this process will be managed by the SEUPB on behalf of the EU Commission, the UK and Ireland.
