To ask the Minister for Regional Development whether there are plans for the provision of new cycle lanes in North Down, and if so, to detail the location.

I would remind the Member that information on completed and proposed roads schemes, including the provision of new cycle lanes, 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:
The detailed budget for subsequent years has not yet been finalised therefore it is not possible to provide details of future works programmes at this time.
I can advise the Member there are cycle facilities along the A2 between Tillysburn Roundabout and the start of the slip road which leads to Holywood Exchange, although there are breaks in current provision for both pedestrians and cyclists along the full route to Holywood Exchange. I have asked my officials to investigate the feasibility of providing a complete link for pedestrians and cyclists along this stretch.
