CLAIRE SUGDEN MLA CALLS FOR EXTRA PROVISIONS ON TRAINS
‘Following recent incidents on trains in the area, and as we approach the busy Christmas period, I have contacted Translink NI to find out what extra measures will be put in place to ensure passenger safety.
We can all expect public transport to be busy at certain times, but it is important that those using public transport feel able to do so with confidence that they are safe. Whilst I understand the challenges faced by Translink, I believe it is important that plans are put in place to ensure that people can travel safely on public transport. I would call for Translink to ensure that measures such as extra conductors, and security are put in place in time for the festive season.’
