Belfast Bikes scheme extended to CS Lewis territory

By Sophie Inge

The Belfast Bikes scheme has extended its reach to the city's newest landmark.

The latest docking station to come into operation is at CS Lewis Square in east Belfast, which opened last week.

This brings the number of docking stations in the city to 40 - an increase of a third since the scheme launched in April 2015.

Located 3km from the city centre, the new docking station is the furthest out and marks the first phase of the scheme's expansion into east Belfast.

New stations are also planned for the Falls Road and Grosvenor Road in west Belfast, and Carlisle Circus in the north.

Wendy Langham, Connswater Community Greenway Programme Manager, said the addition is already "extremely popular".

She added: "Once the Holywood Arches to Victoria Park section of the Connswater Community Greenway is open next year, this docking station will connect to the existing stations in Titanic Quarter, providing a cycle-friendly route from east Belfast to Titanic Quarter."
