Have your say on walking and cycling routes in Swansea

Hundreds of residents in Swansea have been giving their views on walking and cycling routes ahead of a new city-wide map of routes.

Swansea Council approved its existing Active Travel Network Map in 2018 and it features existing and proposed walking and cycling routes across Swansea.

The Council is now in the process of updating the map to include further proposed routes which could be developed in future years and a formal consultation is under way.

The latest plans are part of the Welsh Government's Active Travel initiative which sees councils bid for funding to create new routes and encourage more people to choose cycling and walking instead of the car.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment Enhancement & Infrastructure Management, said: "We've had a good response so far from people in the city who are providing comments on new routes they'd like to see developed.

"We still want to hear from everyone who has an interest in improving walking and cycling routes."

This year, Swansea succeeded in bidding for £3.2million which is being used to create new routes throughout Swansea and will also assist with the design and feasibility of further walking and cycling routes.

Cllr Thomas added: "Since the adoption of the original map back in 2018, we have been very successful in securing funding from the Welsh Government which enables us to improve our existing network and increase the availability of safe off-road routes for everyone to use.

"When the existing map is updated and approved we will continue to bid for funding to help us continue the expansion of our walking and cycling network."

Residents have until November 15 to get involved. Later in October a series of public drop-in sessions and exhibitions will also be arranged so residents can go along and talk to council transport teams about the plans.
