A shipyard in belfast that is planned to be built can become a monument to the Titanic.

The Belfast City Council and Northern Ireland Tourist Board are consulting possibilities by way of a private contractor to build the museum on a planned plot of 185 acre , the museum itself could cost around the £110 million.

The main private contractor, Titanic Quarter who controles prime estate in that area is looking on a few concepts, Chief executive Mike Smith says: "Our concept is to celebrate the Titanic's birth, as it were." One option would be to reconstruct the massive Arrol gantry, a steel cradle upon which the Titanic was constructed. However, Smith says a re-creation of the actual ship is unlikely. "Most people think that's not possible now, because all sorts of things have changed in terms of health and safety."

The headquarters of Harland and Wolff will be converted into a four star hotel.
