Active Travel Act

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 commenced on the 25 September 2014.

The Act requires Local Authorities to continuously improve facilities and routes for pedestrians and cyclists and to prepare maps identifying current and potential future routes for their use.

The Act also requires new road schemes (including road improvement schemes) to consider the needs of pedestrians and cyclists at design stage.

The Act is intended to enable more people to walk and cycle and generally travel by non-motorised transport. Making walking and cycling safer and more practical encourages healthier lifestyles, reduces carbon emissions and improves our environment.

The timetable put in place by the Active Travel Act is as follows:

24 September 2015 Submission of the existing route maps to Welsh Government.

24 September 2017 Submission of the integrated network map and resubmission of the existing route map to Welsh Government.
