§ Newport Road. From Morrison roundabout to Apse Heath advisory cycle lane.
§ There is a path on the eastern side of the road, which could be quartered back and made a joint use path.

General points
§ 20 mph zones in all urban areas.
§ Some main road routes could be reduced in size, made one way, or closed where alternatives exist to create space for cycling/walking.
§ On quiet routes, which could be alternatives routes for cyclists there could be speed limits of 30 mph or put in filtered permeability to stop rat running.
§ In urban areas temporary barriers could be introduced to stop through traffic. Create quiet streets.
