Highways and transport

What steps are we taking to improve?

  1. We will develop the highway infrastructure to meet the priorities of our Regeneration Plan and Swansea Bay City Deal. We will continue to develop a new highway at Cross Hands and develop strategic schemes to connect communities to promote ‘Active Travel’ and tourism.
  2. We will continue the successful integrated public transport network such as Bwcabus/LINC and Traws Cymru, develop a Metro for South West Wales to integrate Active Travel, bus and rail stations and work with regional colleagues to improve rail connectivity and journey times to West Wales.
  3. We will plan to redesign our school transport network to support the Modernising Education Programme.
  4. We will continue to support community and rural transport (see Well-being Objective 5, Step C)
  5. We will meet our objectives set out in our Road Safety Strategy.
  6. We will continue to modernise our vehicle fleet to improve efficiency and reduce emissions and support the development of electrical vehicle charging infrastructure.

The success for this objective for 2021-22 will be measured by:

  • Road conditions
  • Road casualties
