Welsh Government funding has been secured to enable the authority to create an Active Travel walking and cycling route in Ystrad Mynach.
The Council consulted residents in the County Borough regarding their views and proposals to improve walking and cycling infrastructure for everyday community journeys. This consultation informed the creation of an Active Travel Integrated Network Map of routes to be developed to make them suitable for walking, cycling and scooter utility journeys.
The route between Pengam and Ystrad Mynach is one of the routes identified for improvements to enable more people to travel by sustainable modes for everyday journeys and has been prioritised. Residents and proprietors are invited to review the proposals and submit comments as part of the public consultation for this scheme.
The proposed scheme, which is funded by Welsh Government, will provide the following improvements:
Extension of the existing 20mph speed limit including traffic calming along Pengam Road, Ystrad Mynach.
Improvements to the existing 20mph gateways throughout the town centre.
Modifications to the buildout on Pengam Road near the Davies Street junction.
Enhancement of road markings and associated signage to introduce advisory cycle lanes.
Construction of 3 new flat top humps which will incorporate a zebra crossing facility at the junction of Davies Street.
Creation of a new bus stop/buildout in the vicinity of 43/45 Pengam Road for east bound buses in order to accommodate the new zebra crossing.
Your comments, views and suggestions are important to us and will help the Council develop the final scheme details, all observations relating to the proposal will be taken into consideration.
In order to enable participation a consultation event has been arranged at Lewis Girls School on 16 July 2019 between 16:30 and 18:30. Officers of the Council will be available to answer your questions at the event. Should you be unable to attend this event, you may also view the proposal and submit views and comments via a questionnaire on this web site until 23 July 2019 after this period the Council will assume that you do not wish to make any observations.
