Circle Line started this petition to Department for Infrastructure

The Belfast Metro Area has a chronic dependency on car use highlighted by the daily traffic jams and congestion that blight the city.

Many will argue that their car is their only option for getting to/from and through Belfast. And though this maybe true for some this is not true for all.

Public transport in NI has seen decades of decay and neglect, and while the M2 spans 10 lanes, the train track from Belfast going Northbound is a single line of track. 

The York Street Interchange has rightfully hit the skids. Its a bad idea that will only induce further car dependency. 

Proposal would be to reallocate the YSI funding to reopen the Knockmore Line between Antrim and Lisburn and dual the train track going North from Belfast to create a Circle Line around the city, with services running every 15 minutes in both directions up to Midnight and connecting with the International Airport. For the most part the infrastructure is place but additional stations will be required in key locations.

Such a system should make train journeys the logical choice when travelling to and from Belfast removing cars and traffic from the city and ultimately reducing emissions.
