There is a cycle route I take regularly from the t-bones cross roads past cefn saeson school, over the top of the gnoll, past caer y bryn farm and connecting with cycle route 47 and eventually the afan mtb trail network. I've had some issues with going past caer y bryn farm and the owners trying to stop cyclists, even getting the council to put up no cycling signs, which I complained about and had removed as the route past their house is on a byway. The issue is, shortly after their house, the route designation becomes a footpath, even though the path is a farm road, so suitable for cyclists. It would make a good connection to the cycle route as the only alternative currently is to go down the hill from cimla and around the gnoll or on a dangerous busy backroad towards tonmawr.

A safe cycling route into Neath town Centre. At present there is a near completion Safe Route in the Community Route with a 3 metre wide shared path to the end of Dwr y Felin Road. After this there is a footbridge which you are not supposed to cycle over, but most people do. This leads to a pedestrian only area. So to cycle to places such as the railway station if people need to travel to work they have to cycle in busy traffic at peak periods. A lot of Welsh Government money has been provided for the Safe Route in the Community Scheme but it does not help people travel to work, school or into the town. The route doesn't help people travel to work unless they are employed in the primary schools or Neath Port Talbot College or Dwr y Felin School.

Yes

4a) If you answered yes to question 4, please provide more details.

A safe route into Neath town without having to join the traffic in the busy system around Morrisons and roads leading to the railway station when commuting to work by train. Also, there is no safe route for cyclists travelling from Skewen into Neath.

Yes

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?

This point is of vital importance and should be high on the list of safety. When cycling up Pen y Wern hill you experience cars, vans and big lorries overtaking you. This is to be expected but in this area keep left signs and road markings act as a barrier at numerous points resulting in traffic overtaking you and having to pull in to the left quickly before the next keep left sign. This is very intimidating when cycling up this hill.

The interactive map is a muddle to say the least. very confusing

I can't make head or tail of your map. It's so confusing. Very disappointing as the initial part of this survey a few months ago sounded so promising for us who want to have safe cycling routes in Neath Port Talbot.
