Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013

The Active Travel (Wales) Act (2013) places a legal duty upon local authorities in Wales to map, plan for and promote active travel journeys.

The Active Travel (Wales) Act is a landmark piece of Welsh legislation brought forward in 2013 which aims to make it easier for people to walk and cycle in Wales, specifically to promote walking and cycling as viable modes of transport for everyday journeys such as to the shops, work or college.

We are undertaking an online consultation on the Integrated Network Map (INM) phase of the Active Travel (Wales) Act.

Swansea's Draft INM shows potential future walking and cycling routes within the county as well as links to neighbouring authorities. These forward looking maps will show how the existing network could be advanced in future years and will show proposed improvements of existing routes. Enabling more people to undertake active travel will mean more people can enjoy the health benefits of active travel, help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, tackle poverty and help our economy to grow.

We would welcome your views on the draft INM, please view the proposed maps below and complete a brief survey. The consultation will close on 8 September 2017, after which we will be collating responses prior to submission to the Welsh Government.
