Staff at Antrim Bus & Rail Centre are celebrating after the station was recognised at the recent International Station Awards held in Cardiff.

Northern Ireland’s first sustainable low carbon station won the ‘Heritage Award’ that recognises sympathetic enhancements of railway buildings combined with their ability to meet the requirements of today’s passengers.

The £2.9 million construction project for the new passenger facility in Antrim involved the careful restoration of the original station’s Grade 2 B architecture and façade, incorporating it with environmentally sound technologies and major eco-refurbishments.

It was showcased as an example of sustainable station development ‘best practice’ attracting visits from transport experts across Europe including Germany, Netherlands, France and the UK.

The project was funded by the Department for Regional Development and the European Union INTERREG IVB Programme through the Sustainable Stations Project (SUSstations).

During the official opening ceremony, a special Time Capsule was installed in the building including submissions reflecting community life in Antrim. 111 items were provided by local people to represent the number of years since the station first opened in 1902. It is marked for re-opening in 2063.
