Armstrong welcomes Translink investment

The Alliance Party's Infrastructure spokesperson Kellie Armstrong has welcomed the latest round of investment in Translink, after the company announced a new deal with Spanish rail manufacturer CAF, securing a number of new train carriages.

She said: "In this, the year of infrastructure, it is fantastic to see more positive publicity for Translink, especially if this news gives some that extra push needed to leave the car at home and opt for public transport.

"Yet while this investment must be welcomed, Alliance recognises that on-going investment is needed in our rail service - especially if we are to see that kind of service that benefits all.

"I not only welcome this news, but also further welcome that in the current challenging economic environment, Translink is still investing in rolling stock."
