Learn how to deliver Active Travel
Active Travel is one of the central Welsh Government policies to create a healthier, dynamic Wales. How do you do that? Take a CEWales training and guidance course and find out what’s involved to make Wales an even better place to live
No matter what happens on 6th May and who ever holds the political power in the Senedd the changes in how we move around Wales will continue toward a more sustainable, low carbon and healthier future. That mean Active Travel is here to stay.
Creating vibrant, dynamic communities is a key goal for Wales and the built environment sector is key to delivering it. But it has to be done sustainably, it has to be done with people at the centre of design thinking. It has to protect the vulnerable road user and promote a healthier Wales with improved wellbeing through the provision of more opportunities to walk and ride a bicycle to work, to school, the shops and for leisure.
Fundamentally that means rethinking road prioritisation. It means less car journeys. It means connecting transport hubs – bus stations, railway stations – with key destinations like schools, the high street and hospitals.
This different way of thinking needs to be backed by learning, training, guidance and a network of like-minded planners, policy makers, consultants, engineers and developers. That’s why we CE Wales is promoting its training and guidance package for Active Travel.
On completion of this course, delegates will be able to plan a cycling and walking network and understand the key issues which underpin best practice planning and design. This course provides a solid introduction to walking and cycling and is suitable for professionals working in the fields of transport planning, transport policy, highway engineering, development planning and road safety.
The first course was successfully piloted with Amey’s team working on the Cardiff Metro project and other schemes around the country.
You can talk to us about creating a bespoke course or secure a slot for you or colleagues in a block booking for training we are aiming to set up in June.
The course is delivered online in four 1.5 hour modules and provides a solid introduction to planning and design for walking and cycling and is suitable for professionals working in the fields of transport planning, transport policy, highway engineering, development planning and road safety. Upon completion, participants will be able to plan a cycling and walking network and understand the key issues which underpin best practice planning and design.
