Work on the first separated cycleway in Cardiff will begin on Senghennydd Road on 18th March.
This will be the first phase of five proposed separated cycleways in Cardiff, as part of the council’s plan to improve cycling infrastructure in the Welsh Capital.
The five proposed cycleways could make up 13 kilometres of designated cycling space which would run through nine wards on the following routes: St Andrew’s Crescent through to Heath High Level, Dumfries Place to Broadway in Adamsdown, Cardiff Bay to Smart Way, Sophia Gardens through to Llandaff Village and the City Centre through to Ely Bridge. Provision for cycling through dedicated cycleways will also be delivered in the city centre.
Councillor Caro Wild, cabinet member for strategic planning and transport, said: “We want to make Cardiff the best cycling city in the UK and our long term vision is to extend the cycleways further into different communities and also connect the strategic sites identified in the LDP, as well as potentially linking with neighbouring authorities.
