Safety first ahead of hourly services on Derry~Londonderry to Belfast railway line

1 Mins read

Translink’s new hourly rail timetable between Belfast and Derry~Londonderry will commence from Sunday 2nd July.

There are huge tourism and economic benefits from the increased timetable with greater choice for passengers, whether regular commuters, leisure travellers or students.

Translink’s Level Crossing Risk Co-ordinator Keith Pollock said: “I would urge drivers and pedestrians who use level crossings to be extra vigilant, as there will be more trains passing each day”.

Keith continued: “It is crucial to only cross the tracks when it is safe to do so and to follow the rules relating to the specific crossing. Pedestrians crossing with young children, dogs, or bikes should take extra care before crossing the tracks; cross quickly and never stop on the crossing”.

Keith Pollock added: “We have erected signs at private crossings between Coleraine and Derry~Londonderry to inform people about the additional trains using the line. NI Railways monitors the use of crossings across Northern Ireland and anyone, whether drivers, cyclists or pedestrians caught crossing incorrectly could face prosecution. In addition, we would remind people that it is extremely dangerous to trespass on the railway.”

The new timetable coming into effect from Sunday 2nd July will provide for 16 daily weekday services each way between Belfast and Derry~Londonderry.
