Cyclists in Cardiff could be pedalling along the city’s first Cycle Superhighways by 2021 according to a report mapping out Cardiff’s vision to become a world class cycling city.
The report sets out the city’s Active Travel Integrated Network Map (INM) ahead of its submission to the Welsh Government for approval and identifies a range of infrastructure improvements to walking and cycling routes in Cardiff, including new cross-city Cycle Superhighways.
The Superhighways are intended to deliver a step change in provision for cycling, providing residents with wide, 2 way cycling routes that are properly segregated from traffic on busy roads and connect communities with the city centre and other key destinations.
Walking to and from 36 of the city’s schools will also be made safer and easier over the next five years. ‘School safety zones’ and other pedestrian improvements are listed in the report as short term priorities.
