Titanic Quarter (Bridge End) railway station, Belfast
Bridge End station opened in May 1977. It served the Harland & Wolff shipyard and (to a lesser extent) the nearby Rupert Stanley College and replaced the halt at Ballymacarrett.
It was renamed “Titanic Quarter” on 28 March 2012. The platforms were extended towards Central earlier in the same year.

Note added 10 August 2017: a draft “Belfast East Bank Development Strategy” published by Belfast City Council in June 2017 envisages the closure of the present Titanic Quarter station and its replacement by a new structure, on a currently vacant site, between Bridge End and Middlepath Street “Relocating the Titanic Halt to a more pivotal and better connected location will enhance public transport accessibility to East Bank as a whole, support higher density development and aid legibility for visitors to the Titanic Quarter. Onward journeys from the station on foot will be supported by public spaces adjacent to the station assisting orientation and wayfinding and the creation of a high quality route northwards to the SSE Arena and Titanic Quarter.”
