Works for Ynysawdre active travel route are complete

Supported by Welsh Government funding for active travel routes across Wales, Bridgend County Borough Council has recently completed a new active travel route from Ynysawdre to Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen, near Bridgend (seen in red on the map). 

The 440m long route runs through an area of previously overgrown and wooded land, bounding the north side of Brynmenyn Primary School and the east side of Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen.  It links two points on the existing active travel network, as well as provides the start of a proposed future route, continuing to the east of the River Ogmore. 

The route opened at the beginning of April, with DT Contracting working over a period of months, from October 2023 to March 2024, to complete the £500k project.

The 2.5m wide path is available for cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy, making active journeys safer, more accessible, as well as sustainable, for residents across the county borough. Further plans for the route will include planting wildflowers adjacent to path in due course.

Accessibility of active travel routes will help us to reach our net zero target; will offer residents a less expensive way of travelling, as well as enable a means of travel that will promote mental and physical wellbeing.

Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment, Councillor John Spanswick
