  • Link to Gilwern Velo Park

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    The obvious cycle route to get to Gilwern Velo Park from Abergavenny is to join the canal towpath at Govilon. On arriving in Gilwern, the cyclist is faces with several issues: Poor surface of the canal path along Gilwern Wharf, steep access down from the canal path. No crossing point on Abergavenny road (without cycling all the way into Gilwern) and then a narrow de-restricted lane with steep sides and no verge leading to the turn into the outdoor centre. We would like to see many improvements made to allow safe access as part of the velo park scheme.

  • Neville Hall Hospital access

    Apparently a route round NH Hospital was proposed once many years. There are many opportunities for the hospital to improve cycle (and foot) access.

  • A4143 Cyclepath

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    The A4143 heading up towards the Hospital is plenty wide enough for a dedicated cycle path on one side or the other (we suggest the west side). This is often a busy and fast road. (Note this this would also solve the safe cycle access to the climbing wall and softplay.)

  • Llanfoist share-use cyclepath proposal

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    A key link for route 46 users, as well as people getting to/from Llanfoist village hall, is the strip of pavement on the north side of Merthyr Road. We believe there could be the width to allow this to be widened into a share-pavement allowing cyclists to avoid crossing the road twice in the space of a few hundred metres.

  • Waitrose: missed opportunities for cyclists

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    1) More clear directions from Waitrose to the cyclepaths.

    2) Many missed opportunities at Waitrose to encourage cycling:

    a) Cycle stands often blocked with trolleys and equipment from the "garden" section.
    b) No easy pedestrian/cycle access direct to Route 46 (west) when it would be easy to provide one.
    c) anti-trolley bumps on main road in do have a flat path for cyclists, but they are not exactly friendly. How about actually having a cycle lane in and around the site?

  • Remove steps on ramp down from Union Road footbridge to A4143

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    There are relatively shallow paths that run from both ends of the bridge down to the A4143, but both have shallow steps that stop them being useful to cyclists. This means that people heading out of the hospital wanting to cycle down the A4143 towards Llanfoist have to cross the road with the traffic, rather than the safer alternative of crossing the bridge and coming down the ramp.

    Note that openstreetmap's map of this is incorrect. I'll submit a correction (11-04-2014)

  • Contraflow cycle path on Union Road East

    Created by Fraser Stephens // 0 threads

    RAISED AT PUBLIC MEETING 10-04-2014

    Part of Union Road East is one-way, so cyclists heading from the hospital into town have to cycle 3 sides of an undulating square to reach Tudor Street. A contraflow cycle lane would solve this and encourage cycling.

  • Cycle to school path: St Michaels' footpath

    Created by Jack Thurston // 0 threads

    We want widen and redesignate this footpath as a safe, dual use, route, especially to enable children to ride to school safely. This would allow cyclists to avoid a stretch of the Brecon Road and Pen-y-Pound, which are both fast and hostile roads.
