Work on £300k Belfast cycle lanes to begin
Work is to commence on plans of a £300,000 cycle lane in Belfast it has been revealed.
The Department of Infrastructure has confirmed that work on a two-way cycle lane scheme at Middlepath Street is scheduled to begin on January 8.
The scheme will provide 600 metres of cycleway, which will include a segregated two-way cycle lane, bicycle signals and a new toucan crossing.
Preliminary works have already begun in the vicinity to create a new cycleway connecting the Lagan riverside path at Queen's Quay to Titanic Quarter Station.
The Department have programmed the work operations and traffic managements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public.
Motorists are advised that some delays may be expected and additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
To ensure the safety of road users and contractors it will also be necessary to operate a series of day time and night time and lane closures.
Local access will be maintained and all diversions and restrictions will be clearly signposted.
The scheme is expected to be completed by March 2018.
