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?
4) Do you think there are routes missing from the map that would help you make every-day active travel journeys?
1) Did you take part in Neath Port Talbot's previous on-line active travel engagement in 2020/2021?

2a) If no, which route assessments do you think are incorrect and why.
The existing route between Cymmer and Glyncorrwg is not maintained. The drainage system is blocked in several places which causes the path to flood in winter. This also causes ice problems.
4a) If you answered yes to question 4, please provide more details.
A cycle route between Pontrhydyfen and Cimla past Penstar farm and T bones
5) Do you have any additional comments regarding cycling and walking facilities or active travel policy that you would like Neath Port Talbot Council to consider?
Could you please maintain and and keep clean the existing cycle / walkways so that people will continue to use them

3a) If no or maybe what else would help you change your current short car journeys to walking and cycling?
Return of facilities to wihtin walking distance e.g post offices( taking topography into account.- walking 1 mile on the flat isn't the same as walking up hill to Croeserw from Cymmer )
I thinkthatthe issues in the Upper Afan Vallet are very different from more urban areas & therefore need creative solutions perhaps emphasising the leisure and heath benefits in its own right (not achievable by way of swapping car for walking/cycling).Perhaps ocussing more on the needs of older people (more seats on routes for resting)parents and toddlers (maybe cycle free periods on shared paths so that pushchairs and wheelchairsusers aren.t worried about dodging mountsin bikers on their way to mtb trails.. Linking public transport more creatively with walking opportunities e.g. walk & ride routes and prices of tickets
Many facilities are outside the Valley now so people must use cars/public transport many local people already walk.
