The City of Cardiff
Council’s Draft Transport Strategy was approved in October 2016.
The Strategy brings
together in a single document the transport policies and proposals included in
the Council’s adopted Local Development Plan and Local Transport Plan.
It’s purpose is to:
- raise awareness of
Cardiff’s main transport challenges over the next twenty years;
- highlight the main
projects and actions which the Council proposes to undertake to tackle these
challenges and increase sustainable travel in Cardiff
- provide a basis for
future communications and public engagement.
The document highlights:
- the transport challenges
and opportunities presented by the future growth of Cardiff;
- the target for 50% of
all journeys to made by walking, cycling and public transport by 2021, rising
to 60% by 2026;
- the Council’s transport
priorities – the transport actions and projects which the Council will focus on
over the next 10-20 years;
- the opportunities for
transport infrastructure improvements as part of new development schemes;
- the opportunity to
develop a new tram system for Cardiff as part of the future regional Metro
system, proposed by Welsh Government;
- how transport
improvements will contribute to Cardiff realising its ambition to become
Europe’s Most Liveable Capital City; and,
- how the Council’s
transport priorities will be delivered, for example, through infrastructure
projects carried out by the Council and transport improvements secured as part
of new developments
The Transport Strategy
makes a commitment to:
- carrying out full public
consultation on the individual projects which will be needed to deliver our
priorities and on other strategies such as the Cardiff Cycling Strategy
- a programme of engagement
and communication to provide information about transport matters as well as the
progress of individual projects.
To help shape the way we
communicate and engage with people on transport matters we are seeking people’s
views on the draft Transport Strategy document. In particular, we are keen to
- Whether the document
clearly explains the Council’s transport priorities;
- Whether people agree
with the Council’s Transport priorities or have any views on them; and,
- How people would like to
be kept updated on transport matters and projects in the future.
Feedback can be provided
