Commuters in east Belfast get on their bike for survey

By Staff Reporter

Workers in east Belfast are being asked about their commute as part of a new European project to improve air quality and promote alternatives to the car.

East Belfast is the UK focus of a programme which aims to tackle high levels of air pollution caused by traffic in north-west Europe and promote alternatives like cycling, walking or taking public transport to work.

Asda, the Ulster Hospital and Stormont - where Finance Minister Mairtin O Muilleoir is a keen cyclist - are among the employers who have signed up to take part in the survey, organised by charity Sustrans.

The survey closes on October 23. To take part, companies are invited to contact Sustrans in Belfast on 028 9043 4569 or email
