Please find below details of essential engineering works which will take place over the Christmas period  (27th December – 3rd January inclusive) as part of Translink’s Central Area Track Renewal project.

Bus substitutions will be in place for the duration of the works for services on the Bangor Line and between Lanyon Place, Yorkgate and Great Victoria Street stations.

Passengers are advised that the train lines between Bangor and Belfast and Yorkgate and Belfast will be closed during these works, with a temporary timetable and bus substitutions in operation. Great Victoria Street (GVS) Station will also be closed with a bus service running between GVS, Lanyon Place and Yorkgate Stations.

Please note that NI Railways and Enterprise services will operate as scheduled on the southern rail corridor, omitting Great Victoria Street.

Passengers are advised to check their connections in advance, as bus substitutions will operate at different times to scheduled trains.

Bangor line passengers with valid rail tickets will also be able to travel on scheduled Ulsterbus services operating between Belfast and Bangor during the closure period.
