New Translink chairman meets with Minister to discuss public transport in Northern Ireland


Dr Mark Sweeney OBE, recently appointed as interim chairman of Northern Ireland’s Translink Group by Nichola Mallon, Minister for Infrastructure, has met with the minister and group chief executive Chris Conway to discuss the vital role of public transport in increasing connectivity, growing the economy and protecting the environment.

Chris Conway, Translink.

Commenting on Dr Sweeney’s appointment, Chris Conway said: “Mark has served as a non-executive director on our board for four years and has brought a wealth of experience and expertise to help us successfully deliver our corporate strategy to transform public transport to be the first choice for travel.

“Sustainable public transport is central to the daily lives of many people in Northern Ireland and essential for the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the region.  These are key pillars in the delivery of the programme for government and for tacking climate change and air pollution.

“As we move forward, we look forward to working with Mark in his new role as chair to build on recent achievements and to realise the clear benefits of public transport to more people across NI and beyond.”
