The Police Service of Northern Ireland is working together with Translink to ensure visitors and residents in Causeway Coast & Glens have a safe and enjoyable time this Easter. 

There are a number of events taking place across the holiday period, some of which are likely to attract significant numbers of visitors to the area.

District Commander Superintendent Jeremy Lindsay explains: “The North Coast continues to be a popular destination at this time of the year so our priority is making sure that everyone stays safe.  Bear in mind that parking spaces around the Ports are in high demand at this time of year and traffic in and out of the town can be busy so we highly recommend that visitors make use of the public transport links available in and out of the towns.

"If you are taking the car leave plenty of time for your journey and be patient if there are delays. Local police will be in place to keep traffic moving and we appreciate your co-operation on the day.

“If you are planning on staying on to enjoy the nightlife please have respect for local residents; so that means keeping the noise down, especially in the early hours, and behaving in a responsible manner. If you are planning on taking a drink please use taxis or public transport and make sure you get home safely.”

Translink’s Hilton Parr, Head of Rail Customer Services said: “We will be working closely with the PSNI and the PSNI Safe Transport team to ensure everyone has a safe and comfortable journey with us this Easter.  We would also remind passengers that alcohol should not be brought into our stations or consumed onboard our local trains and will take a zero-tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour.”
