Your chance to have your say on improving active travel in Bridgend

Bridgend County Borough Council is working with Sustrans Cymru as part of Welsh Government’s Active Travel Network Map consultation.  The map is a plan of routes that the council will use to inform where improvements to walking and cycling should be made within the county borough. It will help to make journeys on foot or by bike across the area easier and safer for everyone, particularly those who don’t currently walk or cycle often and people who use mobility aids.

In order to design a network that works for everyone, they would like to get the views of as many people as possible, particularly those who don’t currently walk or cycle. This will help them make sure that the routes built for walking and cycling work for the whole community. Your feedback will be considered to help create the Bridgend Active Travel Network Map of walking and cycling routes.

You can share your thoughts on active travel infrastructure in your local area by using their easy online mapping tool. Simply click on the map here to leave a comment.

The survey will close on 22 January 2021.
