Walking and cycling in Cardiff - have your say

Cardiff Council is now consulting on the draft Active Travel Network Map (ATNM), which sets out existing and proposed routes for walking and cycling within the Cardiff Council area. The ATNM includes:

• routes that already meet the appropriate design standards of an active travel route (labelled “existing routes”)

• routes which require improvement or new routes that are needed (labelled “proposed routes”)

• a schedule of schemes which sets out what improvements to proposed routes are required, where this information is already known

On this website you can see a map showing how all the existing and proposed routes will create a network across the city, detailed maps showing the existing and proposed routes within each Council ward, and a schedule of schemes to accompany the maps for each ward.

This consultation is now closed.

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 requires all local authorities in Wales to plan a network of walking and cycling routes so that people can more easily get around for their everyday journeys to work, school and other local destinations. 

This plan is set out in the Active Travel Network Map (ATNM), which looks ahead over a 15 year period.

The draft Active Travel Network Map for Cardiff has been developed to take account of:

  • Proposals to improve routes for walking and cycling set out in the Transport White Paper, including a network of segregated Cycleway routes
  • Routes required to connect strategic development sites to existing communities and key destinations, including the City Centre and Cardiff Bay.
  • Routes required to access important local destinations across the city, including schools and local shops
  • Analysis of the feedback received to the Commonplace engagement undertaken between November 2020 and January 2021, which identified additional locations where improvements for walking and/or cycling are required

We are now asking :-

  • Have we identified the correct routes for improvement (proposed routes)? 
  • Are we correct in our assessment of routes that already meet the agreed standards (existing routes)?
  • Have we identified all the appropriate new routes?
  • Are the proposals in the schedule of schemes appropriate for developing the proposed routes?

This consultation will fulfil the requirement under the Active Travel Act for local authorities to undertake a statutory 12 week consultation on the Active Travel Network Map.
