The Newry and Armagh MLA says, “It’s clear that rail has a major role to play in our island’s future for connecting communities and achieving green, sustainable transport.



“However, our current network leaves much to be desired with many areas being deprived of rail infrastructure entirely.

“In my own area, for example, there is a huge appetite to see an Armagh rail link with Portadown.

“This review will consider how the rail network on the island of Ireland can be enhanced to promote sustainable transport and address regional imbalance by improving connectivity.



“I would encourage people to engage with this consultation and have their say in how our rail network can be improved moving forward,” he adds.
