Looking at the figures revealed this week by John Mulgrew of the Belfast Telegraph. We've done some quick calculations.
Here’s how the total £100 Million budget for the Belfast Bicycle Network breaks down, according to DfI's 10 year project delivery plan.
Year 3 (current)
DfI confirmed to @newsmulg the spend for 23–24 = £0.5M.
That’s 10% of what was pledged for 2023-24.
No idea what previous years’ spend was – let’s give benefit of doubt and assume it was the same.
Let's also assume this is the same going forward.
A quick calculation shows the timescale to complete the Belfast Bicycle Network has slipped from 10 years…
to around 200 years.
As we’ve said over the years – the Belfast Bicycle Network isn't happening and there's nothing you, your councillor, MLA or Minister can do about it.
