Plans Progress For New Bus Lane Along Belfast City Centre Route

Construction News Image
Legislation is set to be brought forward for a new bus lane along Dublin Road in Belfast city centre.

Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon announced her intention to bring the plan forward as she outlined the findings of a review on pop-up cycle lanes in the city.

This new lane will assist with traffic flow for buses and emergency vehicles, while work is set to begin shortly to restore the second lane which will be available to all traffic until the statutory consultation and the legislative process on the proposed bus lane is completed.

Announcing some of the main findings, Minister Mallon said: "The existing cycle lane will be narrowed very slightly to accommodate the scheme, we will push for this work to be completed as quickly as possible and I would appeal to all road users to be patient while it is ongoing.

"I wish to thank everyone who took time to contribute to the review which demonstrated that those walking, wheeling and cycling had most benefit from the pop-up cycle lanes.

"I remain committed to enhancing our active and sustainable travel facilities which allows us to connect communities, improve our health and wellbeing and also tackle the climate crisis."

The full consultation report is available on the Department for Infrastructure's website.
