Templepatrick railway station Wikipedia
The station was opened in 1848 as part of the Belfast & Ballymena Railway, which would ultimately become part of the Northern Counties Committee group of lines owned by the LMS. Following the nationalisation of the railways, traffic on the line was reduced until eventually the route between Belfast and Londonderry was diverted via the Lisburn-Antrim railway line, with the stations on the old route, including Templepatrick, closed. Templepatrick was closed in 1981.
In 1994, Northern Ireland Railways gained funding approval for the restoration of the Bleach Green section of the Derry line, which would allow more direct services into the centre of Belfast. As part of this project, NIR planned to recommission two new stations, Mossley West and Templepatrick. Mossley West opened in 2001, but as yet there has been no movement in a new station for Templepatrick. However, Translink, the public company responsible for public transport in Northern Ireland, has proposed to build a major transport interchange, featuring both a bus and railway station beside the M2 at Templepatrick. This would then potentially serve as a park and ride for towns and villages in the area of South Antrim.
