Fabian Way Corridor transport assessment

The Fabian Way Corridor is scheduled to experience significant development in the next 25 years, generating increased travel demand.

It is important that a balanced transport strategy is established to support the sustainable development of the corridor and to facilitate wider economic regeneration in the surrounding catchment area.

The study covers the strategic route into eastern Swansea and lies within both boundaries of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and the City & County of Swansea.

The Fabian Way Corridor Transport Assessment was therefore undertaken to:

  • Review the outputs of previous studies and assessments within the study area;
  • To assess the opportunities and constraints on the corridor;
  • To identify appropriate transport options to enhance the movement of people and freight throughout the corridor;
  • To present a robust, comprehensive and sustainable strategy for the corridor, including determining the potential funding streams; and
  • To ensure full engagement with all stakeholders.

The original study was published in 2010 and set out a series of strategies to cater for the anticipated development over the coming years. The study was subsequently revised in 2014 in order to sense-check the original report now that early developments are now coming to fruition.

The Fabian Way Corridor Transport Assessment will therefore be utilised as the primary strategy document to govern and guide the development of transport infrastructure in order to support the transformation of this corridor in the coming years.
