Active travel

Cycle path canal

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 aims to make walking and cycling the most attractive option for shorter journeys, connecting where people live to where they want to go.

Consultation 24 July - 5 October 2018

Councils in Wales have to produce Active Travel maps to identify existing suitable routes for pedestrians and cyclists and suggest other potential routes that would help create an integrated network of active travel routes in Newport.

View the maps produced by Newport City Council which have been approved by Welsh Government:

1. Existing Route Maps (ERM)

2. Integrated Network Map (INM)

View Newport's interactive active travel INM 

When looking at the routes on the interactive map you may also want to display other layers including schools, doctors, libraries, railway station, parks, leisure centres etc. 


Tuesday 24 July - Friday 5 October 2018 

We are proposing to formally add connecting routes around the railway station and city centre to the Integrated Network Map.

The inclusion of these routes is subject to consultation and Welsh Government approval.
