No

Please comment:

The amount of traffic using the road means there is a high level of pollution.

Please comment:

There are no solid blue lines.

No

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

Please comment:

For access to educational establishments - yes. Again they are along busy roads where there is atmospheric pollution

Why are Heol Tyn Y Coed, Ty Gwyn Road and Heol y Felin being used as a cyclist rat run?

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

No

If yes, please provide details below:

Rhiwbina is an urban area with limited green space to establish recreational walks with definitive starting and finishing points or a circular route. Individuals will establish their own walking/cycling routes to work, education etc. and will deviate from any fixed route.

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

No

If yes, please provide details below:

I am yet to be convinced that the cost of establishing cycling routes benefits the tax payer and the environment. The cyclists I witness spend a lot of time riding along pavements, pedestrian areas and not stopping at traffic lights and/or pedestrian crossings. When they are on designated cycle routes they are cycling hell for leather trying to break the land speed record. I write this as someone who has been knocked over at a major junction whilst crossing the road with the green man visible and the cyclist travelling straight through a red light.

I think it is an excellent idea to establish ‘walking to and from school’ schemes. This would reduce the number of cars in suburban areas. It may also help the obesity crisis we have in this country.

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

No

I hope there will be an audit of how many cyclists actually use the present established cycling routes. Also an audit of the number of cyclists on Cardiff roads before tarmac is ripped up to establish new routes to the detriment of wider roads and grass verges which encourage wild life.

Safer walking routes are needed to the schools in the area - including reduced speed limits and better pedestrian crossings in Rhiwbina village and at the Ty'n-Y-Parc Rd/Pantbach Rd junction.

Waste of time and money. Look at maes y coed road - I’ve never seen a cyclist using I’m the cycle lane and must have cost thousands

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

No

Please comment:

There are no solid red lines depicted within Rhiwbina. Thus I disagree with the drawing.

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

Yes

Please comment:

There are no solid blue lines depicted within Rhiwbina. I agree that there are no existing cycle routes currently suitable for cycling safely.

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

Partially

Please comment:

Yes, but there are notable omissions as described below that would mean only delivering these schemes would impact the overall success..

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

Partially

Please comment:

Yes, but there are notable omissions, as with the walking routes. There is very little coverage in the north of Rhiwbina.

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:

Footpath along Rhywaedlyd stream from Heol Uchaf south to All Saints Church. Footpath from Beulah Road south to Hill Snook park. Footpath through Cae Delyn from Pantbach Road to Manor Way (next to the Substation) Footpath on Heol y Deri from Heol y Coed to Lon Ucha.

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:

North on Rhiwbina Hill from the Deri Stores to the Pantmawr Road junction.

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

Yes

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

Yes, but the lack of detail of the schemes mean that it could be anything. Rhiwbina needs some real change so that the most vulnerable road users can travel in safety. For instance, the crossroads in Rhiwbina could do with diagonal crossings as the green man time is not long enough to do both crossings safely.

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

Yes

Please comment, including location information:

School scheme for Llanishen Fach Primary School.

It's really important that the hubs of work or leisure - places like UHW and Cardiff City Stadium - have a focus that means there are safe routes from all directions. It is no good just having good routes into town when bike journeys are quicker in a radial direction. Emphasis should also not be on just improving the Taff trail - while it's any easy win - emphasis should be on growing the trade of local shops on the high streets by making sure routes pass in front of those shops (such that travelling to them is first choice), rather than people jumping in their car to go to the out of town stores with large car parks.
