A shared use path for cycling and walking across Clyne Common

This petition had 2,130 supporters

An increasing number of people are cycling and walking across Clyne Common, sharing the busy B4436 is not ideal, a high quality shared use path is needed to make travelling across the common a pleasant and safe experience.

Such a path was first proposed more than a decade ago, but it got nowhere. Now there are more cyclists and walkers and also the support of the Welsh Government in the form of the Active Travel Act (Wales) 2013. Its purpose is to get people out of their cars and, instead of driving, walk or cycle for utility journeys.

The benefits would include better physical and mental health for users and a more pleasant environment for all.

As well as catering for adult cyclists and pedestrians, a route across the Common would provide a safe route to Bishopston Comprehensive for children travelling from the West Cross and Mayals areas.

We believe the provision of a safe travel corridor for non-motorists alongside the B4436 is long overdue and would further open up Gower to more environmentally friendly travel, benefitting local residents and visitors alike.
