We want your views for cycle parking in Cardiff


With more people choosing to cycle in Cardiff, the Council is carrying out a review of cycle parking in the city centre, to access the existing provision as well as identify new locations for people to safely lock up their bike.


To assist the Council in this review, a short survey has been produced so that the public can give their views -


Earlier this year, the Council's set out our transport vision for the city through the Transport White Paper. A key part of this vision is to improve the infrastructure for both cycling and walking.


As well as providing safe routes for cyclists to travel, adequate cycle parking has to be provided to give confidence to cyclists that they will be able to park their bike safely when they arrive at their destination.


All feedback received through the survey will be assessed and will inform the review that is taking place.
