1) Did you take part in Torfaen's on-line active travel engagement in 2020/2021?
2) Are we correct in our assessment of routes that already meet the agreed standards (existing routes)?
3) Do you think the network of proposed (future) routes shown on this map will encourage you to walk/cycle more for everyday journeys?
3a) If you answered no or maybe to question 3, what else would help you change your current short car journeys to walking and cycling?
The route to Ponthir seems to be simply the main road running from the Grange to Ponthir. Given the volume of housing planned for this area the only way too train and bus station is via car or an hourly bus service. Lacking in planning
4) Are there routes missing from the proposed network that would help you make every-day active travel journeys?
5) Do you have any additional comments regarding walking and cycling facilities or active travel policy that you would like Torfaen to consider?
Torfaen is very hilly and indeed mountainous in parts. Why is this money being spent? Also will we actually see results on how many people will use these routes?

TCBCWM34 route is shown crossing the Afon Lwyd within the woodland. The route is entirely on the north soide and loops around withinn the woodland.
A safe off road route is needed betwen Ponthir and Caerleon in conjunction with Newport CBC to form part of the National Cycle network. It would enable safe cycling from Ponthir to Newport city centre and railway station and the good network of safe routes for cycling in Newport..wport CBC to link up with the existing high standard off road route wport CBC to link up with the existing off road routes within Caerleon and to enable safe cycling from Ponthir.
Ref route TCBCINM34, I am not sure that access to that route will be safe. EG it crosses a railway and field containing livestock. How can this be made convenient and safe? Plus a major route both to the Grange Hospital, Croesiceiliog and CAERLEON is along a frightening road that vehicles travel so fast along it stop[s walking and cycling. What measures can be made to share road and pavements with safety?
Ponthir to Llanfrechfa, safe walking and cycling. Ponthir to Cwmbran , safe walking and cycling. Ponthir to Caerleon, safe walking and cycling.
Traffic slowed on the B4236 to 20mph at all times.
Route TGBCNM34 is shown crossing the river Afon Lwyd. The track it follow loops around the woodland north of the river.
