Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard has confirmed that there are currently no plans to create a new rail halt in the village of Dunloy.
This was in response to a question tabled by North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan asking the Minister whether he has any plans to reinstate facilities to allow for a train stop in Dunloy on the Derry to Belfast route.
Responding to MLA McGuigan, Minister Hazzard said : “Translink considered improvements to its railways network under its 2015 Network Utilization Strategy. The outcome of this work did not include a need for a new halt at Dunloy. Therefore Translink’s current capital plans do not include provision for such a proposal.
“I will however ask Translink to keep such proposals and the business demand for them under review for consideration in the longer term.”
