Public consultation has now closed on the Integrated Network Map, which sets out City of Cardiff Council’s 15-year vision to improve cycling and walking routes across the city, in order to meet the requirements of the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 to plan for the provision of routes and improvements for active travel.

What happens next?


Consultation responses will be reviewed in detail and amendments made the Integrated Network Map where required.

A Consultation Report will be published and the Integrated Network Map will be submitted to Welsh Government for approval in the Autumn. The Draft Integrated Network Map which was consulted on is still available to view below.​

Integrated Network Map for Walking

The Overview Drawing (1mb PDF)Link opens in a new window shows the location of road safety and school safety improvements which are proposed to be undertaken over the next 15 years.


10 walking networks have been identified in the following locations, which feature prioritised pedestrian road safety schemes. These networks have been assessed to identify additional measures to improve the attractiveness, comfort, directness, safety and coherence of the routes.


Integrated Network Map for Cycling

The Overview Drawing (1mb PDF)Link opens in a new window sets out a proposed network of cycle routes linking existing communities and strategic development sites with key destinations across the city. These routes include:


  • Existing off road routes and signed on road routes
  • Routes defined in the Strategic Cycle Network (Enfys) Plan 2011 which are in development or yet to be completed
  • Additional routes required to address missing links and improve connectivity across the city


Two primary route corridors are proposed to connect strategic development sites with existing communities and major destinations and provide continuous route corridors that provide the right conditions for all ages and abilities cycling.


The wider network has also been assessed to identify additional measures to address missing links and improve the cohesion, directness, safety, comfort and attractiveness of the routes.

Existing Route Map

Cardiff’s first Existing Route Map, showing routes for walking and cycling which meet Welsh Government standards, was approved by Welsh Government in 2016.


No changes are proposed to be made to the approved Existing Route Map in 2017, which can be downloaded below:
