Cardiff Cycle Superhighways

PostWed Apr 11, 2018 11:59 pm

I felt like this deserved its own thread.

Cardiff Council have identified 5 Cycle super highways to connect parts of the city. I'm actually pretty surprised, it's fairly ambitious. Definitely a move in the right direction, although I'm sure it'll be unpopular with some.

A good plan that possibly need further development. A bit concerned about Highway 4 to the NW, particularly where it runs along Llantrisant Road (A4119) near the old BBC studios. A lot of traffic already uses this route during peak hours. With the new Plas Dwr development to the NW plus a new cycle superhighway plus the current bus lane is surely not feasible?

Is that Newport Road? Would be interesting to see how that worked.....

The other ones are all minor roads no? The one to Ely could be transformational.

I think this is a great idea as part of a wider push to improve public transport links and put less reliance on cars. Congestion is pretty awful in Cardiff now, and will only get worse, so losing road capacity in places will only work if there are other good options available to commuters like trams, light rail etc.

Having separated cycle lanes might actually encourage me to get out on my bike more often!
