Translink employees at Portadown Railway Station have achieved the top Platinum accolade in the annual TIDY Translink Awards Programme.

The programme is designed to ensure that facilities are continuously improving their safety, health and environmental performance, Translink works in partnership with Keep NI Beautiful to access local bus and rail stations, depots and offices. The TIDY Translink programme recognises the teamwork achieved by Translink employees by creating an attractive bus and rail network.

Portadown achieved the top Platinum accolade, scoring 95% or above in the assessment process carried out independently by Keep NI Beautiful.

Translink Group Environmental Manager, Andy Bate, congratulated staff, saying: “We are responsible for transporting people to work, school and social activities, therefore if our stations are attractive, it encourages more people to travel by public transport. Well done to everyone involved.”
