To ask the Minister of Finance and Personnel what plans he has to make the Stormont Estate more facilitative for cyclists.

My Department is currently working with the Department for Regional Development through its Travelwise NI initiative, and in conjunction with the Stormont Estate Travel Plan, to actively encourage staff who work on the Estate to consider all sustainable travel methods as alternatives to using cars to travel to work.
A survey will shortly be issued to all staff who work on the Estate to help identify their current travel means and to ask them that if relevant support services were available, whether they would cycle to work. If the results of this survey identify sufficient need my Department will act on providing support services.
