Upgrades part of railways' growth

Published 24/05/2010

A letter in the Belfast Telegraph, ‘Reducing rail services all too easy for NIR’ (Write Back, May 20), questions the closure of Knockmore halt.

By careful service planning and the right combination of stopping and express services, we have grown passenger numbers from six million-a-year to 10 million-a-year in five years, making us one of the fastest-growing railways in Europe. We will continue to upgrade our network and our passenger train fleet as funding and finances permit and look forward to developing opportunities.
