The Police Service of Northern Ireland, in partnership with Translink, are working together to ensure both visitors and residents in the North Coast have safe and enjoyable time this Easter.
There are a number of events taking place across the Easter period, some of which are likely to attract significant numbers of visitors to the area.
Inspector Ian Magee explains: “The North Coast has so much to offer visitors and the local policing team are keen to ensure that everyone has a good time, but more importantly, a safe time. If you are planning to visit for the day, or for the weekend, then plan how you are getting here.
Bear in mind that parking spaces in Portrush are in high demand at this time of year and traffic in and out of the town can be busy. We ask that you leave plenty of time for your journey and be patient if there are delays. Local police will be in place to keep traffic moving and we appreciate your co-operation on the day.
“If you are planning on staying on to enjoy the nightlife then we ask that you respect local residents so that means keeping the noise down, especially in the early hours, and that you behave in a responsible manner. Use taxis or public transport if you are planning on taking a drink and make sure you get home safely and in one piece.
Hilton Parr, Rail Services Manager for Translink, said: “We want everyone to enjoy their Easter break, so for the safety and comfort of everyone travelling by bus and train we are advising passengers that it is not permitted to carry alcohol on board our services.
