Derry’s bus station has picked up a platinum award at the annual TIDY Northern Ireland awards.

It was one of eight Translink stations across the North to be awarded the prize for facilities that are clean, tidy and environmentally friendly.

Speaking after receiving the award, Translink Group Environmental Manager, Andy Bate, said: “We are delighted with 2012’s performance that saw more stations than ever before enter the top Platinum and Gold award ratings demonstrating our employees’ outstanding dedication to providing a high quality, attractive bus and rail network for both passengers and colleagues to enjoy.

“These awards play an important role in our company-wide Go Eco strategy in which we strive for continuous environmental performance improvement.

“Attractive stations play a key role in encouraging more people to travel by bus and train and we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with TIDY Northern Ireland to ensure our facilities are maintained to the highest possible standards. We have seen many stations take extra steps to boost their environmental performance over the past year and I would like to congratulate everyone involved.”
