Cardiff Group Walk
Yesterday, (1 October) The National Assembly for Wales voted to bring into law the first Active Travel Bill. The main aim of the Act is to make walking and cycling both easier and safer in Wales.
The Act will require all Local Authorities to map and publicise their active travel routes. This is to encourage the public to make trips to work, school, or to exercise on two feet or two wheels rather than in the car.
We welcome The Active Travel Act and we see it as a positive step towards getting more people walking in Wales. Breaking down the barriers to active travel is really important when trying to increase the numbers taking part. Improving the walking environment and allowing greater access to information are two vital components that this Act should help deliver.
We’ll continue to work to try and ensure that the particular needs of walkers are kept to the forefront particularly when determining changes and improvements to our existing routes and when new routes are developed. - See more at:
