Safe Routes in Communities Initiative
The intention of SRiC schemes is to improve accessibility and safety in and around communities. Welsh Government prioritise SRiC schemes that improve access to schools and those that encourage walking and cycling. Through improvements to road safety, the exposure to risk is reduced, resulting in less likelihood of people being injured on our roads and this statistic contributes to improvements in the measure of the quality of life.
Over the years Torfaen schools and communities have benefitted substantially from these Welsh Government funded SRiC schemes. We have improved existing walking and cycling routes to schools and constructed new ones. We have also increased the number of our road safety measures, for example through building new pedestrian crossings, various traffic calming schemes and 20mph speed limits where appropriate.
