North West Transport Hub a real bonus for commuters

Alliance Councillors on Derry City and Strabane Council have welcomed the opening of the new North West Transport Hub in the Waterside.

Councillor Rachel Ferguson said: “The completion of this new £27 million transport hub is a great bonus for commuters in the North West. It will encourage more people to use public transport and so reduce the use of cars and the pollution they cause. It has been funded from a variety of sources, including EU money and that is to be welcomed.

 

Councillor Philip Mc Kinney said: “The new hub sympathetically retains the beautiful Grade B Listed building that was formerly a train station. In addition to becoming a transport hub, the building will welcome a public venue for classes and events to be enjoyed by the entire community. Improvements such as this help to attract new businesses and increased numbers of tourists, both of which will benefit the local economy.”
