To ask the Minister for Regional Development to detail the number of bicycle stands that will be installed in each council area in the next three years.

My Department has plans to provide a number of cycle stands in the greater Belfast area as well as in some other Council areas in Northern Ireland. However, the exact number of stands and their location still has to be determined.
As the detailed budget for subsequent years has not been finalised, it is not possible to provide details of future works programmes at this time.
I would remind the Member that information on completed and proposed schemes for the current financial year can be found in Roads Service’s Spring and Autumn Reports to Councils. These reports can be accessed from my Department’s internet site at the following web address:
In addition, the implementation of public realm and other development works by others, such as DSD, may include the provision of cycle hoops / stands.
