SDLP Torrent Councillor Malachy Quinn has welcomed the approval of three bus shelters in Brocagh, Killeen and Coole Road which were passed at this month’s Environment committee.
“I have been working with residents in all three areas for a number of months, some for much longer in trying to get bus shelters for the local school children. I very much welcome the committee passing these shelters tonight and while there is still more work to be done to finally get shelters on the ground this is a great step towards it. I am also glad to see that shelters in Kingsisland as well as Ardboe and Galbally are also in the pipeline and hopefully these will also be achieved in the months ahead. Most of us can remember what it’s like waiting for a bus in the pouring rain and many of these children are waiting by the road side in dangerous locations.”
