LOCAL Translink bus and rail managers have engaged directly with political representatives to discuss passenger transport in the Newtownabbey area.
The recent ‘Meet the Manager’ event provided a platform for discussion around a range of transport matters including bus and rail service performance, special travel offers, transport plans for future roadworks and the new train timetable due to commence on January 6.
Speaking at the event, Gerry Mullan, Translink Service Delivery Manager, said: “These sessions are invaluable in terms of providing local representatives with an update on local bus and rail services and preparations in place for 2013.
“We would like to them for attending this event and ask for their continued support as we work hard to deliver attractive services for everyone.”
Meanwhile, Translink NI Railways has launched the second edition of its Safety Calendar, produced for the first time last year to reinforce its important rail safety messages.
Keith Pollock, Level Crossing Risk Coordinator at Translink commented: “Safety is a key priority for us and we work hard to maintain high safety standards across the network. Throughout the year we work closely with crossing users, motorists, pedestrians, schools and community groups to promote the safety message and remind them to take care near or around railway tracks.”
