Translink public meeting confirmed: Murphy

February 22, 2016

Sinn Fein MLA Conor Murphy has confirmed that there will be a public meeting taking place later this week with senior Translink staff to discuss issues with the Newry rail service.

Mr Murphy has advised the meeting on Thursday 25th February from 4.30pm to 6.30pm will be open to the public and will allow people to raise their concerns directly with Translink officials, following confusion over a meeting for elected representatives, which took place last week.

“It comes following a series of discussions I’ve had with Translink about issues passengers are having with the Newry service.  While those discussions were useful, there was such a diverse range of issues from people that we felt it best if they had an opportunity to raise them directly with Translink themselves and get answers to their questions personally,” he said.

“I would urge anyone with concerns about the service to take this opportunity and attend the meeting.  Show Translink the depth of feeling there is in the area on this issue and play your part in helping to build the rail service that our city deserves.”
