Active travel

Cycle path canal

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 aims to make walking and cycling the most attractive option for shorter ‘active travel’ journeys.

All local authorities in Wales have to produce active travel maps and improve routes and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

Newport City Council has created active travel existing routes maps (ERM) - see below - and has to submit a set of integrated network maps (INM) to Welsh Government by 24 September 2017.


  • Information gathering workshops: September 2016 – February 2017

  • Route assessment: January - March 2017

  • Draft INM and scheme identification: March – April 2017

  • Validation (including 12 week consultation): May – July 2017

  • Final plan and prioritisation: August 2017

  • Submission of INM: September 2017
