8) Are there any additional schemes you think should be included in the schedule of schemes?
Please comment, including location information:
1) Penarth Road, especially from River Taff to junction with Clive Street
Segregated cycle lane(s) on both or one side of the road, carried through signalled junctions at Clare Road / Corporation Road and Clive Street / North Clive Street; need to investigate whether road width (single carriageway each direction) allows retention of onroad parking. Access improvements to Grangetown Station [due to have lift access for mobility impaired travellers].
2) Route 8 (Taff River Corridor)
The priority improvements are:
a) Wood Street bridge underpass link to Taff Mead Embankment: widen and create segregated cycle / footpaths, better lighting;
b) Improved cycle lanes on Clarence Road bridge;
c) Some resurfacing of shared cycle / footpath along Taff Mead Embankment (tree roots).
3) Holmesdale Street
Link from Route 8 at Bargoed Street, across Corporation Road (cyclist refuge); cycling route access in both directions at Clive Street. Traffic calming in Holmesdale Street.
4) Cornwall Street Virgil Street
a) Investigate ways of calming traffic on this busy through bus route; b) Improvements to junctions at Clare Road, North Clive Street (traffic signals), Sloper Road (traffic signals) giving cycling and walking priorities.
5) Sloper Road
a) As above, junction with Virgil Street; safe access for cyclists and pedestrians at Ninian Park School;
b) Sloper Road junction with Leckwith Road [Canton ward] impossible to access Advanced Stop Box: possibly remodel junction by moving carriageway and creating a protected and signalised cycle lane.
6) Ely Trail
a) Improved access to Ely Trail from Grangemoor Park; remove barriers; possible lighting;
b) Improved access to Pont y Werin at Dunleavy Drive (shared path).
Using your knowledge and experience, what are the main destinations in the area that people could walk or cycle to, but find it unpleasant or unsafe or inconvenient because it’s not direct? Eg schools, shops, surgeries, workplaces, rail stations.
Railway station Grangetown Station see above
Fitzalan School (secondary school) Sloper Road > Lawrenny Avenue. Ninian Park School Sloper Road / Virgil Street see above St. Patricks North Clive Street
St Pauls Paget Street
Grangetown Primary Holmesdale Street
Taff River and Ely River corridors (Route 8 & Ely Trail)
Grange Gardens (Holmesdale Street) and Grange Pavilion Merches Gardens through route with drop kerbs
Sevenoaks Park (Sloper Road)
The Marl / Channel View sports centre
Sports Olympian Drive
Cardiff International Pool & Gym
Viola Arena ice skating rink
[Proposed] cycling velodrome
What are the barriers that stop people walking/cycling to them and may mean they drive instead? Eg busy roads to cross, roundabouts, railway lines, muddy paths, unlit routes where people feel unsafe
See above under priority proposals.
Can you suggest solutions to these barriers eg better crossings, more direct routes, protected cycle lanes on busy roads, closing off residential streets to through traffic but not walkers and cyclists etc
The solutions within Grangetown use the “corridor” approach with protected cycle lanes in accordance with Active Travel design guidance: Penarth Road, Cornwall Street. Particular attention must be given to junction improvements which should allow continuity of cycle protection, including signal controls.
To enable and encourage cycling & walking to school, treatment should include adoption of school active travel measures and audit of local crossings of main traffic corridors.
1) Do you agree that the existing walking routes shown (solid red line) are currently suitable for walking?
2) Do you agree that the existing cycling routes shown (solid blue line) are currently suitable for cycling?
3) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking (dashed red line)?
4) Do you agree with the proposed new routes for walking and cycling (dashed blue line)?
6) Are there additional routes for cycling (existing or proposed) that you think should be shown on the map?
7) Do you agree with the proposals in the schedule of schemes for this ward?

The bricked section of the Bay trail between the bridge and Marl is in a state of disrepair and is barely usable, as is the bricked section of the flyover.
The routes look good, but more detail is needed. For example what improvements are being made to the ferry road section?
5) Are there additional routes for walking (existing or proposed) that you think should be shown on the map?
If yes, please provide details below:
There is a path that links the cycle path going under the train tracks between penarth road and grangemoor park, from that there is a path which should be shown that follows the top edge of grangemoor park linking up to Ikea.
Where ever possible walking and cycle paths should be separate. Mixed mode paths are dangerous for both types of users.
The path on Taffs Mead Embankment gets congested with cyclists and walkers. The city centre road closures have made Taffs Mead Embankment a rat run with a greater volume of cars and speeding making it dangerous for cyclists using the road
Please comment, including the relevant scheme reference number(s) in your comments:
CR4B the connector route from Leckwith Road / Hadfield Road via Sloper Road will have a big impact on not only commuters but also Active travel to School (e.g. Pwll Coch)
Some are on busy road
