Robin Swann and Keith Turner welcome Gardiner’s Corner bus shelter

ROBIN Swann, the Ulster Unionist Party Assembly member for North Antrim and UUP Leader, along with party colleague, Councillor Keith Turner, have “warmly welcomed” the installation of a bus shelter at Gardiner’s Corner, Glenwherry on the Larne Line.

Assemblyman Swann said: “This is the first of a number of bus shelters that Cllr Turner and I have been working on for local residents in a number of different locations.

“Still outstanding is the provision of shelters in the villages of Kells and Connor, something that has been lacking since I was taking the bus to school, but something we continue to work on,” said Assemblyman Swann.

Cllr Turner added: “I welcome this much-needed addition which will be to the benefit of people in Glenwherry and those in Killwaughter who regularly use public transport and who in the past have had to suffer standing in appalling conditions on a daily basis.

“I will continue to champion the case for more of the same and look forward to the time when areas in a rural village or location will be considered worthy enough to enjoy the same type of infrastructure,” said Councillor Turner.

  • Well done such a pity Translink dont support the local children in the Toome and surrounding areas. The excuse is they dont have the money to install any of the bus shelters they have in storage at a stop where probably the largest amount of schoolchildren catch the bus to school and have absolutely NO protection from the elements and biting wind from Lough Neagh .
