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 consulted and collected information to produce these Existing Route Maps (ERM):
