Derry's train station is on the eastern side of the River Foyle. At research time, major works were underway to create a new transport hub at the site of the former Waterside Railway Station, 100m north of the current train station. The new North-West Transport Hub, scheduled for completion in 2020, will house the new train terminus, bus stands, park-and-ride facilities and a green way link to the city via the Peace Bridge.
