Budget cuts will derail new transport plan

I READ with interest your piece on the plan for a Belfast Rapid Transit system recently put forward for public consultation by Danny Kennedy (News, October 13).

It is proposed to spend £150m to encourage more people to use public transport and leave their cars at home.

Is this the same Department of Regional Development that only recently cut funding to Translink, resulting in cuts to services in Belfast and elsewhere?
