New section of cycle route for Snowdonia

CTC attended the opening last week of a new section of Lôn Gwyrfai, a cycling and walking route linking Caernarfon to Waunfawr. The new section joins Rhyd Ddu to Beddgelert.

The work developing the new section of the  Lôn Gwyrfai multi-use path was part funded by the Communities and Nature (CAN) project, which is a £14.5m European funded project led and managed by Natural Resources Wales. CAN aims to generate economic growth and sustainable jobs by capitalising on Wales's environmental qualities, particularly its landscape and wildlife.

Welsh Assembly members pass the Active Travel Bill

CTC Cymru strongly welcomes the passing of the Active Travel (Wales) Bill. Wales can now lead the way in the UK as a cycle friendly nation, with all the benefits for health, the economy and the environment that will bring.

"Wales should be proud of this Bill" was the message from Minister for Culture and Sport John Griffiths. It is due to receive Royal Assent (i.e. it will become an Act) in October, and will then be brought into effect early next year.

New law for better cycle paths in Wales

The Welsh Government has proposed a new law placing a duty on local authorities to map the walking and cycling routes in their area and make a plan and budget to improve them. Wales is being touted as the first country for such law to be introduced.

The Welsh Government's proposals have been brought before the Welsh Assembly as the Active Travel Bill Wales 2013, following a consultation in 2012. 

It's a highly ambitious set of proposals which will force local authorities to identify, map out and improve the walking and cycling networks in their area.
