Written answers (Question to Rural)

My Department occupies offices in two locations, in Trinity Point, Dublin 2 and Government Buildings, Ballina, Co. Mayo.

There are currently 56 shared bicycle spaces available in Trinity Point, which is occupied by three Government Departments and one private company. In Ballina, the building is shared between five Government Departments and a total of 10 shared bicycle rack spaces are available to staff in the building.

In terms of lockers, there are 10 lockers available for staff in the Ballina building and none in Trinity Point. However, in both locations, every staff member has an individual workstation, all of which include under-table lockable storage units where belongings can be stored.
