The plaque unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the new Bellarena rail platforms during her visit to the north coast in June of this year was removed less than 24 hours later due to fears of vandalism.
This was revealed by Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard “Translink has advised that, because the halt at Bellarena is unmanned, it was concerned about the safety of the plaque and the possibility that it could be vandalised. Translink is currently looking at options to minimise this risk.”
This was in response to a written question submitted by People Before Profit MLA Eamonn McCann.
The location of the plaque is currently unclear.
