CPOs of housing grounds at Port Rd housing are likely to fail. Transition from railway embankment to St Marys Well Bay Rd is likely to be over-steep; in interrupting the cyclist journey, it's unfit for active-travel cycling.. the hedgerows on the Vineyard hill would have to suffer severe cut-back or removal, that would cause ecological harm

Why do you feel this way?

• Not a direct route

• Not a feeling but fact! Dog-leg on St Marys Bay Rd. the climb up to/down from the railway is likely to be steep. Blind access onto the road.

No space for 4metre width without taking a strip off the roadway. Hazardous for pedestrians including kids and dogs, with fast cyclists coming from behind. It's contrary to Active travel guidance to have a non-segregated cycle/walk path.

While it could be widened between Cosmeston Drive and the St Mary’s Well Bay Road turning, it has the defect of requiring users to double back on themselves and climb up from St Mary’s Well Road to the rail embankment. Widening of the current path from St Mary’s Well Bay Road on to even a clear 3 metres would require the removal of all lighting standards and street signs and replacement of the hedge with a fence (to avoid the current problem of branches and brambles and of thorns particularly following hedge cutting). Its use is noisy alongside a busy road, which will become busier when the current and approved building estates are completed as there are no viable proposals to get those commuting to Cardiff (or for shopping in Penarth) to get out of their cars. It involves a hill between the St Mary’s Well Bay Road junction and The Vineyards While it offers the opportunity at the north end to connect directly to the existing route on the old railway line, which was part of the consultation last year, and thence to Birch Lane, this opportunity has not been taken. This would be a much better route than the hill on a winding narrow Cosmeston Drive between Lavernock Road and the old railway line proposed for the north end of this option. At the north end, there is no easy way of extending the wider track on Lavernock Road north of the entrance to Ego restaurant so cyclists would be forced onto the main road. It would involve much of the cost of clearing the embankment but then stop short and not deliver the full benefit of that route.

This route is considerably less attractive than Option A. It also fails to make use of the former rail line from the centre of Sully and does not provide safe cycling along the entire length of South Road. NCN 88 needs to be completed.
