Footpaths, cycle routes and roads have been carefully designed to take you through every area of Plasdŵr safely and easily.

Though cars will naturally have their place, priority has been given to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport in line with the City of Cardiff Council’s Local Transport Plan which aims for 50%. You’ll find miles of criss-crossing footpaths and cycleways, wide pavements and pedestrianised areas, helping you get to wherever you need to be quickly and easily and take in the surroundings along the way.

£27.76million has been allocated for investment in transport, including improvements to existing adjoining infrastructure.

Where Plasdŵr adjoins its neighbouring communities in phases 1 &2, there will be improvements to Llantrisant Road, Heol Isaf and Pentrebane Road to encourage use by pedestrians. On the Llantrisant road junctions with Heol Isaf and Clos Parc Radur, buses will be given priority and an additional bus lane provided, and an extension of Pentrebane Road is planned into the new development, plus a widening of Pentrebane Road to accommodate buses.

Three new super cycleways will run through the site, connecting to the Taff Trail and the Ely Trail when Plasdŵr is complete. Buses will also run up to every five minutes serving the proposed development, and people will be able to connect between buses, between bus and rail, and bus and bicycle.
