Train halt would make Ballykelly more accessible – Nicholl

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin councillor Dermot Nicholl has said a train halt at Ballykelly would help make the village more accessible.

Cllr Nicholl was speaking after meeting with Translink yesterday.

“At yesterday’s meeting I once again raised the issue of a train halt at Ballykelly; myself and party colleagues have been highlighting this for some time.

“A train halt would help make Ballykelly and surrounding area more accessible. With the DEARA headquarters now moved to the village, this would also help improve connectivity for workers and provide the option of public transport for commuting.

“It was welcome news to hear that work is ongoing on the expansion of the Park and Ride facilities at Bellarena.

“I asked Translink to look into extending services at Bellareana to make travel more accessible for walkers,ramblers and cyclists at train halts as well as on trains and buses implement it across all networks.

“I also raised the Dungiven Park and Ride and need to progress this along with the A6.

“It was good to hear that more people are using public transport which needs to be encouraged as we seek to reduce emissions.

“It was also useful to hear about the initiatives Translink are embracing in order to accommodate events in the area.”
