Belfast Hub Consultation Attracts Massive Response

Friday 11 November 2016
Our Belfast Hub Project has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of people; since launching our consultation last week, we've received a huge volume of feedback and expect plenty more before the December 2 deadline.
 
 
 
"The overwhelming opinion is one of support for the project with many insightful views expressed"

It’s understandable why this transport-led regeneration project is just so high profile. Identified as one of the NI Executive’s flagship projects, it promises massive opportunity and possibilities not only for the city of Belfast but for the whole of Northern Ireland.

At consultation engagement sessions over recent days, I’ve met a wide range of people – members of the public, Translink colleagues, local business owners, international investors, charities, politicians and other community representatives – to discuss the Hub proposals. The overwhelming opinion is one of support for the project with many insightful views expressed that will ensure we maximise the appeal and success of this world-class facility.

It’s a privilege to deliver this major project; this consultation has reaffirmed the passion and enthusiasm that’s out there both inside and outside our business to deliver a project that will not only transform our transport network but also boost the economic performance of the city. So, please take up this opportunity to help shape the future of NI public transport for generations to come by having your say on proposals – visit www.translink.co.uk/thehub/.

Another high profile infrastructure project – the Derry~Londonderry Railway Line Upgrade - continues to make excellent progress as we work hard to enhance transport provision in the North West region. On Monday we were able to re-open the line between Antrim and Coleraine and we continue to make headway to fully reopen the Derry~Londonderry line on November 21. As we approach this date, it will be extremely important to engage with our customers using great value travel offers so we can welcome them back on board and deliver continued passenger growth.

Of course, along with attracting people to choose public transport, as a responsible business we must always uphold our commitment to passenger and staff safety and welfare. With Anti-Bullying Week 2016 taking place from November 14 – 18, this is a good chance to join forces with the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum and raise the profile of this serious issue.  We transport tens of thousands of young people everyday and want to provide safe and comfortable journeys so that they enjoy travelling independently, instilling positive attitudes towards using public transport into adulthood.  So, it’s important we all get behind Anti-Bullying Week and show zero tolerance for bullying – find out more at www.endbullying.org.uk.
