Active Travel Hub in Belfast

Sustrans is working in east Belfast to tackle high levels of air pollution caused by car traffic and promote alternative options, such as cycling and walking.

Belfast is a growing city, facing the same challenges as other growing cities - congestion, air pollution and rising obesity levels.

Having an Active Travel Hub at the heart of the community, helps us to raise awareness of these issues, so that we and future generations, live in a healthier, sustainable and happier city. We can provide practical support and encourage people to change their behaviour, to be more active by walking and cycling.

The Active Travel Hub is located at C.S. Lewis Square, East Belfast.
