CEF comments on Belfast Transport Hub contractor announcement

Commenting on Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon’s announcement of the contractors for the main works for the Belfast Transport Hub, CEF Managing Director Mark Spence said...

“The commencement of the main works at the Belfast Transport Hub is a hugely significant moment. With the appointment of the Farrans Sacyr Joint Venture to deliver the project, Translink and the Department for Infrastructure will have in place an experienced team which, along with their extensive supply chains, will be ideally placed to build on the works already successfully undertaken by GRAHAM and Babcock.

“After many years of working towards this moment, we are now one major step closer to seeing the completion of this Executive Flagship scheme which will do so much to transform our public transport infrastructure and create local jobs.

“Announcements like this are a significant confidence booster to the entire construction industry in Northern Ireland as we seek to sustainably emerge from the challenges of the pandemic and the unprecedented material shortages and cost increases of the last 12 months”.
