25 February, 2019 - by Paul Maskey

Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has welcomed a funding package for environmentally friendly public transport in the north. 

The West Belfast MP said: 

"The Department of Transport has announced funding of almost £2m to fund hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and refuelling infrastructure. 

"This has been awarded to a consortium that includes Translink and help move towards making public transport more environmentally friendly. 

"It will also lead to the creation of a hydrogen cell refuelling station in Belfast, initially for public transport but could in the future be used by other large vehicles. 

"This is all part of a series of measure aimed at creating a greener environment."
