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.

The Act requires the Council to develop two maps.

  • The Existing Route Map - Approved by the Welsh Government in August 2016. This map sets out the existing infrastructure for walking and cycling within the areas covered by the Active Travel Act. This map can be found in the downloads section below.
  • The Integrated Network Map - Approved by the Welsh Government in February 2018. This map show the routes which the Council intends to deliver over the next fifteen years (up to 2033). This map can also be found in the downloads section below.

The Existing Route Map and Integrated Network Map will be reviewed and updated periodically in conformity to the requirements of the Act.

The Council also prepares annual reports which are submitted to the Welsh Government to monitor the costs and use of Active Travel within the City & County of Swansea. These reports can also be found in the downloads section below."
