How are the new routes going to work for cyclist, in particular, when they are going down narrow residential streets with cars parked on both sites (e.g. Arran Street)? It is difficult to understand how this interface is going to be managed appropriately, to ensure the new routes are safe and functional. Current traffic and parking enforcement in the area is very weak. This needs to be addressed as a priority for these plans to be a success.

lane to rear of Newport Rd linking Elm Street/Partridge Road/Oakfield Street/Roath Court Road. This could be a great segregated route of pavement parking addressed.

No

Please comment:

Albany road is extremely hard to navigate in foot due to over crowded pavements, a lot of street clutter, and the residential streets are constantly used as rat runs. Pavement parking on every corner. It's a joke. The roundabout by St Margaret's Church is a nightmare to cross and would benefit from a Dutch style roundabout

2) Do you agree that the existing cycling routes shown (solid blue line) are currently suitable for cycling?

No

Please comment:

There is no solid blue line

3) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking (dashed red line)?

Yes

I only agree to them if the amount of vehicles used on mackintosh place can be reduced. Its a rat run, with a load of pavement parking, and unenforced speeding is rife. City Road is also all of this and more.

4) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking and cycling (dashed blue line)?

No

Please comment:

Shirley Road is a rat run which is dominated by cars on this residential street.The roundabout by Fairoak road is a nightmare to navigate and would benefit from a Dutch style roundabout with integrated cycle paths

Fairoak Roundabout and St Margaret's roundabout should have Dutch style roundabouts with integrated cycle paths. Albany road and mackintosh place should have continuous pavements

Yes

Please comment:

I don't understand what makes Arabella Street a walking route and none of the others. It's not marked any differently, you would really only know by looking at the map I would say the same is true of Albany Road going on to the roundabout.

2) Do you agree that the existing cycling routes shown (solid blue line) are currently suitable for cycling?

Partially

Please comment:

There are none marked on the map, despite there being a good bus lane on Crwys Road and a great cycle lane on Wellfield Road. I often cycle Moy Road from Arabella Street to get to Wellfield road or Roath rec ground, I find it quieter and easier, I wonder if that could be identified as a route, like a quiet way. Cars do seem to dominate those small back roads though.

3) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking (dashed red line)?

Partially

Please comment:

It would be great if you could add the route that is within the rec ground and the leisure gardens as walking routes, these are much more pleasant to walk, but the paths around the rec ground are in very very poor condition, and could benefit from investment and resurfacing, If the existing rec ground path could be incorporated to the pavement, that might leave a healthy width by replacing some of the existing pavement with a cycle path. Ninian road can be scary to cycle. I have had a few close passes here.

4) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking and cycling (dashed blue line)?

Partially

Please comment:

I think the council are missing a trick by not including a modal filter for cycles into the existing pedestrian section from Donald street to Plasnewydd Road. This could give a quiet cycle route all the way from Roath rec, down hendy road, across Albany road using the existing crossing (which does have lights on it to mark it for cycles) and onto Plasnewydd Road. This would provide a useful connection to Newport road if connected through to Newport Road too. The alternative of cycling on City Road is terrifying.

5) Are there additional routes for walking (existing or proposed) that you think should be shown on the map?

Yes

If yes, please provide details below:

Richmond Road to Rhymney Street, a really important link to Cathays but feels dangerous. It should be included. Could collaboration take place with Network Rail to improve access on the bridge for cycles and wheelchair users?

Also, see comment on Moy Road, and adding the paths that form part of Roath Rec Ground.

The entirety of City Rd should be walkable.

Yes

If yes, please provide details below:

City Rd desperately needs a bike lane that connects to Newport Rd. Whether or not alternative bike lanes are built, people will still use City Rd because it is so direct - they may as well have a segregated bike lane to protect them.

The proposed changes look fantastic, especially the cycle lane that will connect the red route to Cathays and therefore cycleway 1.1, but my only concern is the length of time in which these schemes will be delivered. Councillors parade the current pop-up cycle lanes around as if they are some grandiose feat of civil engineering. In reality, they are a welcome but inadequate step toward fully segregated cycle lanes that provide the safety and infrastructure needed. I understand that pop-up lanes are a temporary measure, but the drawn-out consultation periods mean that they can be sitting there for over a year before any actual commitment is made toward active travel.
