Lawther says hurry up on delivering Ballymartin Park and Ride

Alliance Westminster candidate for South Antrim, Cllr Alan Lawther has expressed disappointment at length of time it is taking to provide Park & Ride facilities at Ballymartin in Templepatrick and called on the Minister for Regional Development to get the project moving more quickly.

Alan Lawther said: “The original target for opening the first phase of 400 car park spaces with bus-based Park & Ride at Ballymartin in 2010 has been missed. The new target, however, as set down by the Minister for Regional Development means that this service will not be provided until 2012.

“This is deeply disappointing and I would ask the Minister to do all he can to deliver this important project more quickly than he has stated he will.

“This further delay is unacceptable and it is vital that a Park & Ride service is provided at this strategic site in order to provide sustainable public transport options for the people who use this transport corridor.”
