"Our station awards scheme has been running for 12 years and I am very pleased at the high standards being maintained"

Newry Train Station and Foyle Street Buscentre have received 100% in the SPIRIT of Translink Facility Awards, in conjunction with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.  Our station awards scheme has been running for 12 years and I am very pleased at the high standards being maintained.  In total this year, an impressive 7 platinum awards were attained across the network, with the other five going to Antrim Bus and Rail Centre, Craigavon, Downpatrick, Newry Buscentre and Strabane.  The awards which focus on Go Safe, Go Eco, Go Together, and Go Healthy support a culture of continuous improvement, giving recognition to staff in creating an excellent customer experience for passengers. 

Preliminary work gets underway on the railway track in the Lurgan area next weekend, ahead of the Lurgan Area Track Renewal Project. Over 1.7km of track will be re-laid during a four-week closure period in July and August, running from the William Street level crossing to a point beyond Bell’s Row level crossing. The line will also be closed on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd March. These closures have been timed to minimise disruption for our customers and the wider community as far as possible.  Bus substitutions will be in place between Lisburn and Portadown, calling at Lurgan, for both Enterprise and NI Railways passengers. 

Foyle Metro and Q Radio have teamed up to present “Foyle Metro Matchmakers” which takes place this Wednesday. 40 local people will board the Foyle Metro Matchmaking Love Bus and engage in a speed dating event.

Lanyon Place station is hosting a photography exhibition focused on the theme of ‘Home’ and developed by people with a mental health illness, addiction or learning disability. Belfast City Council, working in partnership with the charity Inspire and Translink, commissioned the ‘Home through the Lens’ project to coincide with the Council’s wider cultural engagement programme exploring what ‘Home’ means to the citizens of Belfast. The photographs are also displayed on 10 Metro buses giving our passengers a unique opportunity to view the exhibition as it tours streets and communities across Belfast.
