Realities of park and ride scheme

Published 21/12/2015

Translink chief executive Chris Conway was singing the praises of park and ride in The Big Interview (DebateNI, December 14). Obviously, he has not been in Dundonald at peak times, when the traffic is jammed up courtesy of traffic lights at the junction of B&M and the Dunlady Road.

When they are red, with no vehicles exiting the park and ride, traffic can extend across the A20 dual carriageway either from Robb's Road, or from the slip road of the A20 dual carriageway city-bound.

Also, whose idea was it to remove a bus stop for Ulsterbus at Davaar Avenue and divert the buses into the park and ride to pick up non-existent passengers? Ulsterbus does not need to divert to this park and ride as the buses run on the A20 anyway.

No doubt, Mr Conway will blame Transport NI for their traffic management.
