Local Member of the Senedd for Delyn, Hannah Blythyn said,

“I am pleased to see our Welsh Government prioritise the transport network. Whether it is out on the doorstep or via my transport surveys, residents report back the changes needed to our road network, to improve safety and repair damage from severe weather.

Having this investment in our community will help support our local economy and enhance our public transport as well as encourage more people to use the new active travel routes by cycling or walking.”


Local authorities were invited to submit proposals to the Welsh Government for local transport improvements that will help to deliver the priorities and ambitions of Wales’ Transport Strategy. These include:

  • Addressing disruptions to the highway network caused by severe weather.

  • Delivering walking and cycling routes
  • Improving bus journey times and waiting facilities
  • Delivering publicly available EV charging infrastructure
