The development of railways in Northern Ireland has been linked to the future economic growth of the region, and as a way of reducing road congestion. Instead it proposes a dedicated airport station, similar to Glasgow Prestwick Airport , connected directly to the terminal, with Tillysburn half a mile away serving Holywood Exchange, instead of Tillysburn providing the link to the airport. This report determined that so-called "lesser used lines" were an important and economically viable part of the total network, and that investment should be consistent rather than in the "stop-go" manner of previous years. The line is maintained both for crew training and as a diversionary route, and passes close to Belfast International Airport at Aldergrove.
The development of railways in Northern Ireland has been linked to the future economic growth of the region, and as a way of reducing road congestion. This includes the introduction of ticket vending machines, allowing customers to purchase tickets via an electronic interface at the station as opposed to the current system in which customers must pay staff for the ticket, who in turn print the customer's ticket for them , a 'smart card' 'tap on, tap off' system similar to the Leap Card and contactless payments. The limited fleet size has led to services being cancelled due to failures or delays. Once the project was completed in , there is a further proposal to add two trains per day, enabling journey times between Belfast and Londonderry to be reduced by up to 30 minutes. The BMAP proposed a light rail line from the city centre that would have interchanged with a new railway station at Tillysburn, serving both the airport and the Holywood Exchange retail development. Airport links Ballinderry on the disused Lisburn-Antrim line Speculation remains that the Lisburn-Antrim route could re-open, potentially to offer an alternative Antrim — Lisburn — Belfast service. While it is also available as a diversionary route, Knockmore, Ballinderry, Glenavy and Crumlin stations have closed. To enable NIR to maintain its levels of service, it upgraded some of its older rolling stock. However, it was determined that to deliver improved frequency of service on the network the size of NIR's fleet had to be increased, and with that must come associated infrastructure improvements. Three four-car Class 80 units were refurbished and a number of locomotives and coaches were converted to push-pull operation with the addition of the DBSO obtained from 'one' , to ensure that passenger rolling stock levels were maintained up to the introduction of new rolling stock in and In , the Class fleet was refurbished to a standard close to that of the Class units, which saw them through to their withdrawal in This can lead to widespread disruption across the network and potentially a huge loss in revenue. Pressure groups have advocated the protection of former routes, where the track has been lifted but the trackbed remains intact, to enable these to be reinstated for commuter traffic as an alternative to increased road building. Both the Bangor and Larne lines have been re-laid in recent years, enabling timetable improvements to be delivered. Instead it proposes a dedicated airport station, similar to Glasgow Prestwick Airport , connected directly to the terminal, with Tillysburn half a mile away serving Holywood Exchange, instead of Tillysburn providing the link to the airport. Reopening of existing but closed infrastructure, notably the Lisburn-Antrim line Improvement of the infrastructure on the Belfast-Londonderry line through, at the very least, the installation of passing loops to allow service frequency to be increased, and upgrading the track to allow higher speeds. As a means of improving timings of its services, Belfast Great Victoria Street is planned to undergo a major refurbishment that will see the platforms lengthened and the curves reduced, together with the addition of a new fifth platform, all planned to bring about the transfer of Enterprise services from Belfast Central. This line is single track with crossing loops north of Mossley West and single track only west of Castlerock , which limits the service in both frequency and speed; in the current timetable the train takes 2hr4m  while the bus takes an 1hr50m. Trains continued to run between Londonderry, Coleraine and Portrush , with a small fleet stabled at Coleraine  — four trains were stabled instead of the three previously reported. Proposals have been made to increase capacity by building an additional platform, and make this Enterprise's northern terminus The rail network is focused on Greater Belfast. At minimum, this was to be like-for-like replacement of the Class trains, which were withdrawn in However none of these enhancements are programmed to go to planning over the course of the next decade as of early This proposes the return of the network to several towns that have not had access to rail services for many years; the main part of the proposal would see the Londonderry-Portadown line re-opened, which would link Omagh , Strabane and Dungannon , with branches to Enniskillen and Armagh. This saw projects including the purchase of the Class trains, the complete relaying of the Belfast-Larne line and the construction of a new maintenance depot. The route was also included in a wider study of the development of the Northern Rail Corridor published at the end of  The Belfast Metropolitan Area Plan identifies the need to improve transport links to George Best Belfast City Airport from the city centre.
