Newry’s bus and rail facilities rewarded for environmental performance
Newry Train Station received a Silver award while the city’s bus station received Bronze.
The TIDY Northern Ireland assessment categories include: general cleanliness, litter awareness, graffiti awareness, exterior maintenance, waste management, Translink brand profile, facility enhancement measures, community involvement, energy management and environmental communication. For a second year in a row, stations showed the best improvement across the ‘General Cleanliness’, ‘Waste Management’ and ‘Community Involvement’ categories.
Speaking about the results, Translink Group Environmental Manager, Andy Bate, said, “We are pleased with this year’s performance demonstrating our employees’ commitment to providing an attractive bus and rail network for both passengers and colleagues to enjoy. These awards play an important role in our company-wide Go Eco strategy in which we strive for continuous environmental performance improvement.”
“Attractive stations play a key role in encouraging more people to travel by bus and train and we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with TIDY Northern Ireland to ensure our facilities are maintained to the highest possible standards. We have seen many stations take extra steps to boost their environmental performance over the past year and I would like to congratulate everyone involved in delivering such a fantastic set of results,” said Andy.
TIDY Northern Ireland’s local environmental quality officer Chris Allen said, “These results are clearly an indication of Translink’s commitment to continuous environmental improvement and TIDY Northern Ireland is looking forward to seeing even better results in the future.”
