1) Do you agree that the existing walking routes shown (solid red line) are currently suitable for walking?

No

Please comment:

It is along building site with many road works in place

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

No

Please comment:

I can't see a solid blue line

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

No

Please comment:

The dashed red line runs through the main Road on Radyr, however links from Morganstown to Radyr are poor with narrow, overgrown pavements along side a busy road with vehicles travelling at high speeds, often double the speed limit, making it impossible to safely walk along the main road. This route would definitely benefit from improvement. Consideration also need to given to other routes such as Drysgol Road and Bryn Derwen which need widening and improvement

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

No

Please comment:

Again links from Morganstown to Radyr have been omitted. It is not safe to cycle on the current road with the layout and high speeds that vehicle travel. Dedicated cycle space needs to be allowed for as well as pavement widening for pedestrians. Thr pavements are currently in very poor condition and narrow..

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:

Proposed

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

Yes

If yes, please provide details below:

Significant improvement and dedicated space for cyclists as currently not safe with current road layout

7) Do you agree with the proposals in the schedule of schemes for this ward?

Partially

Please comment, including the relevant scheme reference number(s) in your comments:

General pavement widening and improvement is required . Some pavement are too narrow and overgrown to be able to safely walk on.

8) Are there any additional schemes you think should be included in the schedule of schemes?

Yes

Please comment, including location information:

Improvemt of village centre at station road with pavement widening and one way vehicular access. General pavement widening and road design to reflect the speed limit to help reduce the speed at which vehicles currently travel through.

The proposals for Radyr do not include any cycling infrastructure in the places marked with the dotted blue line on the map. These are supposed to be the proposed cycing routes and need work to make the suitable for cycling

The proposals for Radyr do not include any cycling infrastructure in the places marked with the dotted blue line on the map. These are supposed to be the proposed cycing routes and need work to make the suitable for cycling, but you have not included any schemes to do this. For example the lane between Kings Road and Woodfield is listed as a proposed cycling route, but the 'road' surface is completely unsuitable for cycling.

No

Please comment:

No solid red lines are apparent - do you mean Llantristant Road, a solid pink colour? If so the path alongside that major highway is not wide enough, and the top of the hill (close to the new Rhydlafar development) the route is so overgrown it is impossible to walk along

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

No

Please comment:

There are no solid blue lines! That just about sums up how well served the area is for cyclists!!

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

No

Please comment:

Heol Isaf is too busy to be considered a walking route for anything other than minimal essential 'walks' to get to a quieter area

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

No

Please comment:

Golf course lane is now so overgrown it is not safe for a road bike to cycle along this route - urgent action is needed before extra costs will be needed to undo damage being caused. The route along Llantristant Rd forming part of the housing development on the Rhydlafar Hill is on the wrong side of the road, cyclists will continue to use Llantrisant Road noit the new cycle route, which is see is already out of use due to ongoing repairs - it really is worht speaking to cyclists to consider the correct routes for cycle lanes. Whoever you currently use appears not to have cycled previously. The cycle lane along the entrance road into Parc Radyr is too wide. It is used by the adjacent houses as a car park, mainly as they only have single drives, so too little room for thier cars.

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:

During lockdown we 'discovered' a myriad of footpaths, mainly in the area sourh and west of Radyr, none of these routes are shown

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

Yes

If yes, please provide details below:

Cycling has been alnost ignored by Cardiff Council for far too long, at last there is some effort being made after years of thinking painting an 18 inch strip in the gutter is a cycle lane. Segregated routes are finally being built on far to small a scale, and all routes appear to be radial routes to/from the city centre - an east/west route across cardiff is needed. There also needs to be some 'joined up thinking' - there are too many short cycle routes left isolated. Please ensire developers are forced to link up the new cycle routes if you want to see them properly used...please consult with cyclists to ensure routes 'flow', if you want them to be used - the new cycle ways built in Radyr over the last decade are all classic examples of poor design, there is no flow so they will not be properly used.

Too little info given to properly comment

8) Are there any additional schemes you think should be included in the schedule of schemes?

Yes

Please comment, including location information:

More effort needs to be made to create a netwrok of walking/cycling routes - this is a great initiative, but will action be taken based on consultation? Past experience suggests CCC usually ignores consultation - the objections to the Plasdwr development being the most obvious case in point. Please consult with cyclists to ensure routes 'flow', if they do not flow cyclists will not use 100/200 meter isolated routes - all new cycle ways need to link up (ie 'flow') if they have any hope of being used.Continued poor design will limit use.

9) Do you have any other comments on the Draft Active Travel Network Map for Cardiff?

No, though i suspect the plan is to focus on bus lanes despite the clear unpopular nature of public transport. The pandemic makes this even more obvious. Ironically at the same time as new bus lanes are multplying, the old bus station was redeveloped, no suitable replacement appears to be a priority. That contradiction of policy appears questionable, no wonder the buses are so unpopular, a lack of central bus station is not helping.

Morganstown side of the Bridge over Motorway is dark, un-overlooked and scary, intimidating place for females after dark

A Better walking experience along Heol Isaf and past Radyr Primary is good thing - dissappointed that walking route along Heol Isaf doesnt extend to Morganstown though. Dissapointed no link to Asda/Village Hotel/Tongwynlais from Morganstown Via Gelynys

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

Partially

Please comment:

Dissapointed no link from Morganstown to Taff Trail/Ironbridge via Gelynis Farm. Disapointed that Pughs Garden Village and the industrial estate between Ty-Nant and the Quarry remain inaccessible from the ActiveTravel Network when both are very significant trip generators. Surprised by the proposed direct link between Hailey Park and junction at end of Heol Isaf at new Plasdwr development - the contours would make this quite a challenge.

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:

Heol Isaf (Radyr) to Pughs garden Village. Morganstown to Tongwynlais and Asda Coryton

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

Yes

If yes, please provide details below:

Pentyrch to Creigau and Pentyrch to Radyr/Plasdwr at Pant Tawel Lane/Bryn Derwen. Also Radyr to Gwaelod y Garth to unlock Pughs/TyNant Industrial estate and allow Gwaelod y Garth kids to cycle to Radyr Comp

One part of the jigsaw - needs to go hand in glove with traffic circulation plan and the Metro
