To ask the Minister for Regional Development for his assessment of the proposal for a cycling and walking greenway from Victoria Park via Alderman Tommy Patton Memorial Park, the railway line to George Best City Airport and Belfast Harbour Estate to link with the North Down Coastal Path at Holywood.

I would refer the Member to my response to his recent related question AQW 25539/11-15, when I advised that cycling facilities already exist along the A2 between Victoria Park and Holywood.
I understand Sustrans is developing a proposal for a cycling and walking path along this route. Sustrans has indicated it will be bringing forward details of this proposal to the next meeting of the Active Travel Forum. This will provide an opportunity for my Department and other relevant bodies represented on the Forum to consider the proposal.
