Active Travel Network Maps
All local authorities in Wales have to produce maps of walking and cycling networks in their local area, known as Active Travel Network Maps (ATNMs).
The Active Travel Network Maps user guide explains how to access and use the online maps.
The Active Travel Network Maps background information guide explains the Active Travel Network Maps (and how to interpret them).
Active Travel Network Maps are created and maintained by local authorities in Wales and are shown here together for ease of use. For further information and queries on individual maps, please contact the relevant local authority.
Currently, mapping for a limited selection of local authorities is available online, but all remaining maps will be added once they have been approved by the Welsh Ministers.
HOW TO OPEN THE MAPS:
Maps can be accessed either by clicking the green ‘Display in map viewer’ button (above right), or by selecting an individual local authority from the list below:
|Flintshire||Isle of Anglesey|
|Neath Port Talbot||Newport|
|Rhondda Cynon Taf||Swansea|
|Torfaen||Vale of Glamorgan|
NOTES ON ACTIVE TRAVEL NETWORK MAPS:
Active Travel Network Maps show two main things:
- Existing routes – current walking and cycling routes that already meet Welsh Government active travel standards, and can be readily used for everyday journeys, and
- Future routes – new routes that the local authority proposes to create in the future, as well as current routes that are planned for improvement to bring them up to the standards.
- All pedestrians and runners, as well as users of mobility scooters, wheelchairs, pushchairs, and mobility aids are included in the definition of walking, and all cycles, including legal e-bikes, adapted or non-standard cycles are included in the definitions of cycling
- Timescales shown for developing future routes are indicative only, and may be subject to change by the local authority
- The coverage of the networks is focused on the larger settlements in each authority, in line with legal requirements. However, routes outside these areas may be included where there is high potential for their everyday use
- Where a future route is defined as both ‘walking and cycling’, this does not imply that it will be a shared use route; all options for pedestrian and cycle provision will be explored as part of the route development process
- Where important existing routes fall slightly short of the required standards, there will be a short statement available explaining the route’s limitations
- Information about related facilities and barriers is also available on the maps, including toilets, cycle parking, steps, and road crossings
