The Department for Infrastructure (DfI) has come under heavy criticism from cycling enthusiasts after tweeting a picture of completed resurfacing works along the Sydenham Bypass.

Work between Dee Street and Belfast City Airport was finished at the weekend and included the resurfacing and painting of the existing cycle lane.

The post, which was shared on the DfI's official Twitter page, read: "Resurfacing was successfully completed on the Sydenham Bypass and adjacent cycle lane over the weekend between Dee Street and George Best Belfast City Airport."
