The rebranding of Belfast Central train station has taken a step forward with the unveiling of a new 'Lanyon Place' signage.

It was announced back in February it would be undergoing a name change alongside a major refurbishment of the station, and the new title will officially come into effect from next month.

The name is being adopted to reflect the part of the city the station is in, and 'Lanyon' has been adopted by a number of other businesses locally.

It is hoped the £1m refurbishment of the station will lead to further development in the area.

The name is taken from the Lanyon district of Belfast, named after Victorian architect Sir Charles Lanyon who designed a number of prominent buildings in Belfast, including the main building of Queen's University and the Linenhall Library.

Belfast Central is a major terminus for commuter routes into the city. It also hosts the cross-border Enterprise service to Dublin.

Belfast Central was used more than 2.8 million times by passengers in 2017/18.
