Proposed designs for the first section of Cardiff’s Cycle Superhighway Network have been revealed today.

The 1 kilometre stretch of fully segregated cycling infrastructure runs from St Andrew’s Crescent along St Andrew’s Place and Senghennydd Road.

Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and Transport, Councillor Caro Wild, said:

 “More people riding bikes will bring benefits like reduced congestion, better air quality and improved public health to the whole city, so we need to make it as easy as possible for people to take that first bike ride.

“Research has shown that full segregation can play a big part in encouraging less confident cyclists, and especially women and people with young children, to choose cycling over other forms of transport.  In fact you only need to look at the growth of cycling in London to see the impact that safe, good quality cycling infrastructure can have.

“These proposed designs for the first section of our planned Cycle Superhighways are the start of a journey that, along with other planned improvements to the city’s cycling infrastructure, could transform Cardiff into a world class cycling city.”
